Desert Flower, Poem

She walks through the desert

With a bottle in one hand

Humility, creativity, gentleness

And grace pours out of it,

How she sees is true to believe

And never an empty word spoken

But every gesture subtle in careful motion.

Her spirit flourishes in open spaces,

Her mind intricate, woven with light and truth

Her hopes dancing on pearly clouds.

For she dares not speak ashamedly,

She is a new creature made anew.

Not impressed by others material gain,

Only by those that dance in the rain.

Her voice a rose with sharp edged petals,

Cares enough to tell you the truth,

Content when she is a source of love & harmony.

A beautiful poem with great imagery. I too wrote a poem titled Desert Flower, if I have posted it on my hubpage I will link it to this one. If not, I will post it soon. A little different presentation, but similar in thought.
