Azurite Climber

by Julie Kovacs

Camel of Bactria
making a living climbing a steep mountain
the home of azurite
ancient gemstone
found in graves along with gold
Golden camel
your name is Zarathushtra
after the ancient Persian prophet
who spoke of
good thoughts
good words
good deeds
to the ancient world
long before the advent of the Persian Empire.
