Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

the desert and the rain

24 April 2013

the desert and the rain



endless sameness,


tortured landscape,

dust-blown dunes …


life adapted to cruel mirages

… and extremes.


unrelenting daylight,


nighttime cold,

a gnawing loneliness,

where even God seems

deaf to your screams …


And then … the rain …


I am the desert … you, my rain.
