underneath the desert stars, with cracked salt sand underneath my toes.
mother called to me, called out to my soul to let it go.
to be at peace, to come home to her.
she beckoned me as she does to all her children.
i went to her as a lost and hurt child.
and there she was this whole time, waiting so.
i frolicked in the desert sand,
i ran with in all that space with no where to go
i screamed from deep inside
and then…i laughed.
