She Is

15 in W x 27 in H
Italian smalti and 24K gold
She is a blaze of russet and gold
Walking across desert plains
She is patient elegance seen through
Swirling dust along every roadside
She is crowned with her humble vessel
She is sanctified by water she carries
To quench her family’s thirst
She is the golden spiral
She is Rajasthan, 2009.
Admiration for the women of Rajasthan, India
