Blue Monday: Cactus Woman

Detail from a wall of mosaics, Ajo, Arizona

Cactus Woman has nothing to lose
By walking for weeks without wearing shoes.
She’s toughened her feet on thorns and stones,
And carries the wilderness in her bones.
Her eyes are afire, her heart’s ablaze;
She loves the desert’s unsociable ways.
Cactus Woman is someone, they say,
Who’ll live in the wilderness, come what may.

    This reminds me of my youth. I hardly ever wore shoes unless I was at work. I finally learned to wear shoes when I moved to where we had Hawthorn trees. Even my tough old feet couldn’t withstand those thorns. Ugh.

  4. Luv your cactus woman for her adaptive spirit

    much love…

  5. This is wonderful!! I love it.

  6. Enjoy my visits here! I am very late but I have lots of blue today.
