Desert Shade


The soul stays long after hope and love leaves.   It’s rugged roots hold fast against the spinning world.   The pace of life well past any form of control.  Ideas like water, dry up.   The pulse quicken.  The feelings go sideways, again.

The hope of one more drop of water.  The memory of wetness.   The living dries up faster than the thought.   The pulse of life can’t keep up with that thought.   The hope for one more drop.

    1. Thank you so much. I’m new at the prose poetry thing. So anything that works is a win. :-D. I thought I captioned picture it was from Picture it and Write challenge. Truly haunting work wasn’t it?
