"Desert In Bloom"
He walks through the desert
grabbing handfuls of silken petals
heavy with morning dew
not thinking of the thorns
piercing his calloused fingers;
A working man…
Standing in a small room
she shakes out a moth covered white towel
then walks through a narrow passage
to the other side of the wall
to bring her flowers…
More poetry and art by Virginia Maria Romero arrived and it is my pleasure to post them. These new pieces continue the work of this poet, and artist, grabbing the emotional connection between her artwork and her poetry. This poem is a reflection of two characters connected by the mutual thread of love, as two individuals knowing the heart of the other.
