She lived her life dessicated,

An arid desert in the heat of summer…

Dusty sand that scours raw the skin

And the few crumbling brown plants,

dead for lack of moisture.


Then came the storms

With drops that hissed and sizzled,

And drowned the parched land

Bringing life to the xeriscape,

And hope bloomed in profusion.


*First new poem of 2018

      Hi Al! I am having so many issues with my blog. Can’t update wordpress, or Jetpack, or pretty much anything and its driving me nuts. That’s why I haven’t been posting. Even I am having trouble accessing my site. Plus, health issues have sucked but are getting much better, thankfully. And after a wonderful lunch with friends I feel uplifted, supported, and inspired. Hopefully I’ll be writing more now. But I’m taking it one day at a time. Nice to know you are still in my fan club. 😊
