My blog--I pull a card--if it doesn't speak to me...perhaps it is for you?

Ocatillo

The woman came to the desert
to camp, and though I am prickly
and poke and scratch
she settled by me.
I offered my blossoms, she carefully plucked
and made a sun tea
that she drank
pouring a libation for my roots.
I spoke with her beneath the clouds
and the sky.
"My thorns, defend my tender inner bark,
as you must set boundaries
to protect your heart."
As the daylight faded
and the coyotes began to howl
the woman and I
joined our harmonies
to the world song.
