The desert



Heavens descended from afar,
sand heaped from west,
leaving an artistic wave on the ground,
the shadow left me and ahead before me.

Faster than i could imagine,
my anxious mind sloped into a shallow dug,
the wind came in with its slap,
of sunlight,beamed like hell,

The stunted trees seems shrubby,
cheated by nature in the desert of wonders,
the whirlwind tore from the east,
making way towards north.

Sending dust cast into my sight,
and engulfed the partial sun that splashed,
its hotness into the earth,
And a mild calmness returned.

When the night rolled in as the sun,
speedily crawled away,
what a harmonious love of nature,
without crash of entangling each other,

There i knew nature's statement,
perfection is eternity.
