You came frozen brittle Punched and pinched from the cold Washed by a strange wind To the warm Baja shore.
And the sun kissed you
And the moon bathed you
And the tight held flower inside you
Opened each day and night.
And you sang a blossom song
And you laughed and loved and cried
And you found the human being
You knew you had inside.
