Tumbleweed pulses through my veins,
of Baryshnikov’s dance.
I writhe in pain as I wrap my feet and smile.
My heart races as the heat of the desert scorches within
searching for an opening
my gut twisted in knots as I breathe in the beauty of the cholo cactus that runs through my spine out my crown Chakra,
reminiscent of the heavens I find within
you and me.
I take a bow to the audience and the vista-blowing tumbleweed that sweeps my heart to love that opens to the heavens.
