the redemption of sunlight

bristly cactus

we really do
only live
in one
small corner
of the world.

here:
green trees
rich with rain
grey skies
prickles of cold
against the skin.

there:
blue bumping into clouds
prickles of cactus
attacking my leg
brown ground
vastness.

sometimes,
seeing
something different
is the only redeeming
i need.
