Desert Dreams

Desert Dreams …

 

Whispering wind

Silent sand

Forgotten bones

Barren land

Burning sun

Shimmering moon

Chill of night

Heat of noon

Ancient man

Wandered first

Land of want

Land of thirst

Broken hearts

Shattered dreams

Dreamer’s plans

Abandoned schemes

Ancient art

On ancient stone

Ghostly hands

Long unknown

Timeless curse

Desert land

Whispering wind

Silent sand

    Will, I am impressed ! I love this poem. It expresses the desert extremes vividly in your word imagery. A title with ‘Desert’ in it always pulls me right into the piece. Marvelous, dear poet. And the picture you chose makes me want to go for a walk in the desert, while you recite poetry or a story to me.

    Thank you, Phyllis! What great comments!

    I’ve lived in the Sonoran desert here in Arizona for more years than I care to count and it fascinates me to find an old whiskey bottle or an old bullet in my gold pan (that happens surprisingly often!). Who drank from that bottle, and who fired that bullet?

    A clever and evocative piece Will, and all in three syllable lines. It adds a power to the work and conveys your expression with stark wonder and truth of the desert. Beautifully penned my friend.

    Perfect description of the desert in short sharp lines with perfect rhyme. I knew there was a poet hiding under the guise of a Western story writer. Great job, Will.

    No, I’m no poet, John, but I sometimes scratch out a line or two. Thank you!
