Bee-ginning my new larval phase.

Under the Mesquite
by Guadalupe Garcia Mccall (Author)
Booktalk: When Lupita learns Mami has cancer, she is terrified by the possibility of losing her mother, the anchor of her close-knit family. Suddenly, being a high school student, starring in a play, and dealing with friends who don’t always understand, become less important than doing whatever she can to save Mami’s life.
But lately Mami’s changed.
A thorny mesquite has sprouted
in the middle of her rose garden.
Even after she has pulled it out
by its roots repeatedly,
pricking herself on its thorns each time,
it keeps growing back.
This week’s Poetry Friday Round-up is hosted by Random Noodling.
sunrise, sunset, and
the world turns around and
does it again…sunrise…
