Four Questions (from a trip to southern Utah)

1. A juniper tree, hanging onto a gravelly mound
   in a bend of the canyon,
   until the next flash flood.

2. A set of lizard tracks in the drying mud.

3. A dusty drive toward a far trailhead,
   down a narrow wash bordered by steep banks,
   arriving at length at an impassable sand trap.

4. A butterfly.
