Silent

Not all deserts are wastelands.  
Not all deserts are dry.  
Not all deserts are visible. 
Not all bird songs can be heard.  
Not all humans sing to be heard. 
And yet, here we are , 
The birds, and I,
Singing in the desert, 
Invisible and silent.

Dissonance

By the riverside,

We walked, myself, and three dogs.

The dogs were content.

Dark Dance

Straddling fault lines,
We dance above the abyss.
There is no safety.

Heavy, The Air

Heavy, the air.
Weary, the trees
Whisper their despair.
Invading miasma
Of crawling dreams,
Drifts, dense
With unremembered songs.
Heat oppressed,
Unseen Loa cry.
Intensely sweet
Their unheard wails
Are entwined,
Tangled,
In blue mist.
Eerie soup flows,
Thick with voiceless
Voices filling
Unrequited voids,
Empty of regard.
Leaves droop,
Breathless.
