Sentiments of the Southwest

Spread the love

FotorCreated Southwest

Lo! observe as beyond the pale horizon the
desert flowers bloom; hear their gentle sigh
rising high above the wind. Perhaps bristle
and burr came in whirl of wants and words.
Charmed by the nectar of flowers and song
from wee bluebirds.

Upon exploring thus terrain round bosom
of the South; let us soak in warmth of sun
and float high along with clouds. At nights
these dunes do whisper, legends that tread
till dawn. Lo! mountains decked with pride
guard until hours of rest are gone.

Revered the desert silence;
Bestows an equal balance.

  2. Oh I can tell you know the desert, though not this particular one. Love the focus on sound… Deserts have a music of its own.

    Favorite lines — although there are so many. You have such a distictive “voice” in your writing. This is, as always, beautifully penned — or I really should say “painted.” Sighing I am.

  4. This is so exquisite…you have captured the SW. Sorry I didn’t make it to prompt nights. I had a perfect poem but I’ve been on the road (desert) and knew I wouldn’t have time to visit others. We got home to a mess and I’m just catching up.
