Ancient Kiva in
DESERT
UNVEILING
By AMY VIAU
Santa Ana, CaliforniaFrom the rim of great distanceWhere the sky is tucked in,New morning spreads crimsonWhere night shades have been.The crests of saguaroAre etched in mid airWhile unhurried silencePervades everywhere.And in the cool freshnessOf unstirring reign.The desert unveilsIts luring domain.

By SYLVIA REEVES

By HELENA RIDGWAY STONE
South Pasadena, CaliforniaIt is as though an artist, overnight.Has dipped his brush deep in a tube ofgreenAnd touched the desert, making emeraldbrightWhere only sage-gray drabness has beenseen.Alone, through silent hours he toils unaided.Stirring in Stardust for a silver hue.And 1 awake to find that winter's fadedAnd desert sands are carpeted anew!
Truth Dwellers
By TANYA SOUTH
None can attest to Truth so wellAs they who only in it dwell.They seem to stand apart, to liveWith purpose but to do and giveFor others. And an exaltationSo guides their every mood andway,That neither burden nor privationCan dismay.
