A TWO FACED LANDSCAPE

by thereluctantpoet

By Christine Bolton And Charles Robert Lindholm

The Shifting Sands
Of The Desert

Have No Empathy
For The Confused
And Unprepared

An Arid Expanse,
A Two Faced
Landscape,
Masking
The Truth,
And The Hidden
Dangers Ahead
With An Alluring Beauty

Misunderstood,
Layered And Complicated
She’s Loved,
Yet Unloved Too,
A Lover To Some
And The Devil
To The Foolish

Unsurmountable
Obstacles Exist
For Those
Who Never Learned
Her Secrets

Arduous
Exhausting
For Body And Soul

A Cage-Less Prison
With No Escape
For The Proud
And Disrespectful,
Burned By The Sun,
Victims Of Thirst,

Who Are Buried
By The Shifting Sands,
And The Wind

Sands and Gold

by Venkat

image

Your world, made of gold
To my eyes, perched on your heart
Squealing chirps, you read as a song
Upon every corner, you hold as a branch
As I come, as I go, with wings uncertain
You hold this freedom, you give
By a home, warm as a nest

Tea in the Desert

Driving through the desert
Pink the sky with first signs of dawn,
Hope of sleep would have been crushed
Had we not caught sight of the trees.

We Should Not Delay.

by beeseeker

Twice three days

Past the last of the

Snow-and-salt trees,

Belts of long mountains,

We may find

What we deserve

In this serious desert:

Sleeping Alone

by lonewolfpoetry

 

I sleep in a desert, empty and expansive,

lying awake I cannot help but relive

those times when on a regular basis

you would transform my sands into an oasis.

Lush green forests would grow

and I would bask in your golden glow

unaware that as quick as the flick of a butterfly wing

your love would become a short, sharp sting.
