Water in the Desert


The water in the desert
Is a real Dam miracle.
Colorado stream diverts
to Las Vegas spectacle.

Technology has moved this
environmental treasure,
creating an oasis,
a place of gambling pleasure.

For better or for worse.

Author Notes:

Hoover Dam provides the water to Las Vegas as well as all its electricity. It is an engineering marvel, but I wonder, at what cost.

This is just simple abab rhymed quatrains on a meter of 7 counts.

This photograph was taken by the Author himself during a trip to Las Vegas in March, 2013.
