As we roam about the desert we learn to see what's there
The rocks, the dirt, the cactus, and the wildly blue sky glare
The creatures of this land can take on the heat that's here in stride
Turtles, snakes, and all the lizards take it on, with desert pride
Checking out the rock formations, that took many, many years
Shapes and colors, of these rocks, reflect their beginning, it appears
Reflecting for a minute, while gazing upon this land
Will open up your mind and give you much more than you planned
The desert, as we know it, can be a hostile place for sure
Wonderfully, beautiful and hostile, makes it mystical and so pure...

Living in the desert has its visual advantage for sure.
It seems to inspire some words as well.
