Juniper

juniper drawing

Grace, she is

Under fire

Thirsting in the desert

Rising

up sweep her arms

Assymetrical Dance

fluid…watery

against angles of landscapes

Rocky

Poised for centuries

Pouncing on a moment of rain

surging growth from the trails of water

– Does the surge churl like maggots under carcass skin?

…Awkward and uncomfortable…

Until

Too far she is pushed

Desert famine

Chainsaw cuts

Memories release from years of pulling on rich, red rock

spicy, sweet smoke rising

Grace under fire.
