The Desert


if there’s no water in the desert

at least i have a bottle in my hand

if the desert is barren and dusty

there’s an oasis where shades are abundant


changing shapes, heights and slopes

tiny fragments and rubble strewn

over the dry plain desert floor

 particles of sand and dust

are carried aloft in storms


large weathering variations

of day and night temperatures

downpour over hot rocks

cause them to shatter


remnants and debris

into smaller particles

are eroded further

whisked away by the wind…
