“On a Desert Road” dVerse Open Link #75

The crescent-bent moon
weigh’s against the stars
so I may know their value.

I walk through wild desert
flowers’ intimacy, relying on
the diplomacy of sand,

and converse with thorns threading
my veins to create a perfect
freedom emanating from planets.

  12. converse with thorns threading
    my veins to create a perfect

    Clever way of making incompatible situations compatible to each other. Nicely Pam!


  13. Pamelita, “the diplomacy of sand” is perfect. After all, it makes room for other things like plants yet still maintains its own sense of self. Perhaps the U.N. should think on this one. Thanks for your good wishes, and yes, you are truly “rooted” as well – but if you ever get a hankering for a bit of snow, you know where I am!! xo and Felicidades, Amelita

  15. Beautiful, Pamela. I’ve always wanted to see the desert, now I want to even more.
