Wright Stuff

From local materials
Stone and cement
Students and fellows
Learned and labored
Arizona desert
Winter quarters school and studios
Taliesin West
Wide open space
Clear distant mountains
Indian land long abandoned
Low structures embracing nature
Annual caravan migrations
From Wisconsin
Shock on arrival
Power lines marring prized panorama
Called Truman
Take it down
No such luck
Pack everything we leave tomorrow
For Tuscon
Third wife made sense
Then mid eighties
Late to start over
Redesigned the view
Now signal towers
Top that distant peak
Today pristine
