    I held my breath
    as I watched you
    wander that dream world desert
    sifting gold from
    tawny sand,
    swirling your fluent hand
    through the eddies
    made by the foot prints
    of lizard and coyote.

    I waited
    for you to discern
    my tracks from those
    of the nibbling brush deer,
    my padding path
    across your memory.

    And soon a tool of bone
    inlaid with soft turquoise
    finds your fingertips.
    It is etched with
    stories of cyclic clouds
    and there is a great wave
    of blankness for
    the time the waters
    last came to me.

    My vision set you
    in the singing sand
    where you began to
    hum with the vibration.
    Painted on a cave wall in tones
    of red I rode
    the trance of the ancients.
    They said when the
    tingling of two
    rises through Hesper's
    haze and drifts

    past the dog star
    silently howling to
    it's desert brothers
    then, this melding
    of melting singularity
    merges to form one tree
    with roots stronger
    than time, reaching
    down into the tears
    of the earth to pull up
    water in the dryest times.

    What a strange, strange
    world you spoke to me--
    rustling voice through
    crackling leaves.
    I will make an offering
    of sandalwood at
    the trunk of this tree
    just as the first rays
    of morning break over
    the eyes of the horizon.

    Stunning & Fleeting, well done craft-sharing. :)

    the gradient of gritty glass grains under foot,
    yet soft upon thy tracking paw pads
    finding your path of smooth spirals and scented words,
    tracks a rosetta stone of blossoming plants
    like an ancient language unspoken
    growthcasting your message
    as i pickup and follow your linguistic pheramones


    you sit central atop a dune
    the silent bone flute flutters
    a neuractive journey into sound
    arcing from the horizon circumference
    conscious borealis engulf the barrens
    heyoka transcribes a circle in the sand

    tree transpiration matches sun evaporation
    sharing dyadic gulps of desert nectar
    that brother star you see,
    supernovaed long ago
    nourishing the
    elements

    Of all the thirst in sandy mouths
    dunes of sifting and sifting grain
    the sun as a fluent brother to the night
    leaves phosphorescent presperation--
    the dew we kneel to drink
    with tongues from chisled stratic
    minerals and soft so soft
    the rock scrapes against it.

    So you sit in my desert?
    A drunk dreamer we share
    cactus crescent moon fumes
    and tinker with design of
    constellations commencing through
    this time you say has faded.
