This is for my friend Cat. I have come to know her and this is how I see her. A delicate flower in the desert and capable of enduring almost anything. She is a survivor. This is for you Cat, I love you.

Desert Rose

You're still here
because you know
how to survive
the impossible
being that you are wedged
between a few rocks
and a dry hard place,
even still, you have
taken root and bloomed
despite what others may feel
you seem to lack to endure;
A sand storm could not
cloud the vision of any
who have come to know
how beautiful you are.

  A sweet dedication. I liked how, in such few words, you managed to share with us so many of your dear friend's qualitlies. A good way to show how much you admire her.

Give yourself and Cat my love

  Nice tribute Mags, to an obviously close friend.
I have had the chance to read some of Cat's work and have exchange some amount of dialog and from the little I have gathered, she seemed like a very nice person.

I enjoyed this Maggie, though I think you should remove the caps Mags. Cat tends to prefer to write common letters (not like you don't already know

And also that maybe you could change the last line, something more along the lines of

'how beautiful you truly are.'

That sounded a bit better but thats only a suggestion. Anyway, great write.

Keep it up
and take care

  This is so sweet, I adore it. This Cat must be a wonderful person, and people like that are so hard to find. I like the metaphor of being like a flower, I think it works really well. Wonderful.

  oh Trina, you've made me cry.. this is just beautiful and i'm at a loss for words.. you are a wonderful person, and i feel blessed to have you in my life, even though i've never seen you! i am humbled by this, my friend.
when i'm feeling down, i will read this again and again, for it comes from such a beautiful heart to a friend who's seen some rough times.

you are a gift, Catlady. thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  Well...Magnifigato personified eh?
I think you hit the bucket right on the nail!
(Did I say that right?)
Maybe you had all your eggs in one pudding.
(Is that correct?)

I dunno...but if I was asked to write something to my good writer friend would definately be one of those algebraic equations where
T + D = Magnifigato

She is more powerful than she leads us to see...but we do see it...doo-deep-doo-dee-doo-doo....cant fool us forever Cat.

Nice job "other Cat"

  Very interesting and sweet write, maggie.
The comparison.. a desert rose.. indeed is a survivor.. even with all the circumstances still able to bloom. That is something/ someone to admire, I bet.
Of all the words you used, I liked the last one most:

A sand storm could not
cloud the vision of any
who have come to know
how beautiful you are.

Clear that she means a lot to you but i think she must be glad to have a good friend like you, as well.

  this is cool.

A sand storm could not
cloud the vision of any
who have come to know
how beautiful you are.

those were my favorite lines. this person has to be strong indeed to prosper in such a hostile environment. is it a coincidence that both of ur names start with the same three letters?
