Desert Rose

She swims seas swaddled in strength.
She scolds as deft as she dotes
Her heart heaves as heavy as it hurts
That’s a woman!

When half of the world leaves
She cleaves.
Even when the man leaves
Because he can’t feed the kids
She sticks;
Around, long enough.
When no one cares enough to clean the mess
Look closely
And catch her look of tolerant amusement;
That’s a mother.

She sits through all the hazards that life bring
With a patient shrug;
She smiles at grief

Home is her safe place
Even when the master;
Becomes heartless.

She holds water
Enough for a deer.
To survive all till the tides turn
She rains fire for fights more than Pentecost

A woman!
She is that desert rose.
