Drought Shadows

Opuntia

Opuntia

Hot, restless winds blow across the desert

The fruit and flowers of the garden have disappeared

The future hangs heavy on the horizon, void of course

Drought followed by famine and fear have decimated

The crops we have always grown to sustain ourselves

Now we eat cactus to survive, knowing it is a gift

The bright colored blooms delight our hearts and spirits

Promising fruit that will keep the community alive for a while
