Desert Truth


Desert Truth

Vast sky seems bright and endless
Vivid blue shocking senses
A land array in muted shades
Tan grass and earthen stone
Dark gray and olive green trees
Desolate like bones of wood
A forest of corpses in the desert
Thrusting out of rock and sand
Wind moving through like a scream
Whistling and howling dust and debris
A ghost that makes all desert
Tearing apart the sandstone land
Cotton ball clouds racing the sky
Contrast of sky and desert awakens me
A truth not more seen than felt inside
Truth that I am like this desert country
