Look out!

Javelinas cross
from behind the creosote
where asphalt begins.

The creosote scrub along the desert roads can hide all sorts of wildlife from unwary drivers. Beyond the hazards to our bumpers and the javelinas themselves, creosote, once a main ingredient in asphalt, has been found to be toxic. On the positive side, when dampened by rain, the creosote leaves release an unforgettable, enchanting scent.

The fragrance of rain
blooming from the creosote
makes me want to dance.
