Desert Succulents

Take the time to read this beautiful poem.

Flicker of Thoughts

she is scooped up by the abrasive desert wind
the forced settlement cannot break her spirit
in her arid bed sleeps her shallow roots

she is thirsty for life
the desert rain is often light and brief
too sudden and too short lived for most
for her,
she thrives in conditions others wither

she despises mediocre
the desert sun is scorching and wearing
long suffering brings out her vibrancy
nature trials her with extreme heat and cold
she births uplifting pigments to protect her fragile pose

she is beaten by the violent sandstorm
leaf scorched, foliage torn, uprooted
it seems that she has nothing left to fight
until she senses the coming of fog
and tastes the sweetness of dew

Lament for Ruth

A tribute from my friend’s heart.

Words from JeanMarie

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced
until a new president is installed.” Ruth Bader Ginsberg, 2020

This Breaking News has broken
my heart, my hope.

Justice, my grief is suspended in fear.

What is to become of the poor, the abused, and the desperate
with overburdened wombs?

What is to become of the immigrants and the asylum seekers
caught in wire nets?

Who will ensure our POC, our LGBT, and non-binary
won’t be erased?

Justice, my grief is suspended in guilt.

With every Breaking News story of recovery
against all odds, I breathed a sigh of relief.

Your slight frame and bowed head
belied your strength and resilience.

Did our selfish prayers for your health and longevity
tie you to this mortal coil beyond your endurance?

Justice, my grief is mine to bear, not yours.
Go now to your final rest, in peace.

Notorious RBG…

Farewell Justice

He said it well.

Bartholomew Barker, Poet

Farewell Justice

You fought with words and logic—
powerful weapons for justice
in reasonable times
but it’s easier to manipulate
some folks by advertising fear.

You struggled for so long
and now to honor your memory,
we must continue the battle,
to march in the streets,
to cast our ballots,
to assure your legacy is not erased.

You weren’t in the majority on the court—
but you represented all of us,
We the People.
