The Rose of Jericho

One leaf out of the fire

West wind taking it higher

One year after forever

two hands coming together

 

And now their roots are protected

and green is starting to show

for here there’s life unexpected

like the rose of Jericho

 

One earth, something has shifted

One left, soon to be lifted

 

One skin just like another

One night, flight undercover

 

And now their roots are protected

and green is starting to show

for here there’s life unexpected

unfolding like the rose of Jericho

 

Where fire cools

in bright night skies

where desert winds

sing lullabies where stones can move

with featherweight

an open door an open gate.

 

There are stories carved

in rings so deep

but the lines thought lost

have been found complete.
