A Gathering Of Tumbleweeds

a gathering of tumbleweeds
hesitated, trembling aside the highway’s edge

until an odd,
hot-breathed little wind scampered by

and sent these airy, bouncing skeletons
of a dry and blue new mexico

somersaulting, racing
through the dusty roads and fields

of desert wintertime

This is nice imagery. It's set in New Mexico, but it reminds me of parts of the California desert also. Well-done!
