prickly and dry terrain
as far as the eye can see.
Walks are beautiful here,
but watch your step,
desert creatures aren’t always friendly.
Sometimes it must seem like there is no end to the desert, no growth happening.
And yet, on our walk
I see something new,
there, just around the corner,
It’s bright yellow,
in contrast to the dust of the earth,
it looks as if the sun planted itself right here.
Green foliage grounds it in the earth.
This beautiful, shining flower shows me that even in the desert,
This flower is special. It’s one of a kind.
Others pass it, unnoticed.
Not us, we see it.
And know, it is just for us,
A reminder, that love grows,
wherever it’s planted.
