G is for Glorious

My Theme for the A to Z Challenge: Desert Canyon Living

Glorious moments abound in the canyon, 

from a long view on a winter's day to

a sunrise in spring ,

a brief moment in time when the grass is green and

wildflowers cover fields and hillsides.

Samson's first howl, a glorious sound,

imitating so well the call of the wild.

A simple dinner prepared with love by my husband,

a fire in the wood stove, 

a good book to read, 

as the day draws to a close.

All glorious moments of my life in the canyon.

Henry David Thoreau wrote: 
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

P.S. A little snow fell here last night; the grass and wildflowers are dusted with snow this morning.
