She enters the desert

Painful blisters plague her feet

But she walks on

Entering the sun

Letting it burn away her skin

Releasing her soul

And she cools

As the sun dies

So she can live.

A woman with a higher purpose and vision in every step... seems like a Phoenix-write to me, Carrie! Having a cause one is prepared to die for perhaps make sense of living. Love the cleanness of your lines and the crispness of your message. A wonderful poetic crucible, thank you. Kate x
