©Swallowing A Widespread Carpet of Burnt Umber and Sienna

 

deseert sands walking away

Is there a way to swallow
the sands of the desert
without becoming the desert?

A habob storms in, runs away.
Your footsteps are no longer
seen; the feel of you beside
me suddenly disappears…
Left are the dust devils
carrying your memory.

After years, it was your
spirit I let inundate me.

Now when the wind picks up,
I feel the grit of the desert dust
and swallow the sounds before
I sink into the widespread
carpet of burnt umber and sienna.
