Burn

crossing
the sea
sizzling hot sand

fiery
coarse sand
my feet burn

running
with everything
envision salty shores

emerse
singed soles
ignite cool waters

close
my eyes
swelling surf magnified

gentle
soothing breeze
heals the burn

Outback

one single impression no 10: desert/deserted…
photo: outback, pebblesrubke, photobucket

in days gone by i traveled to oz and lived in western australia, traveled up and down the west coast… in the northwest travelin by car every so often we’d pass a bridge and there would be a river waiting silent… we would rest awhile, take a cool dip and move on…

Outback

hot dry breezes blow
cooling river sings out loud
meditative day

hushed river flowing
arid air sitting so still
red sand reflects heat

vacant blowing wind
remote invisible roads
shifting sands utter

serenely barren
roaring river races by
boulders subtle shade

* * * * *
and, just because…. deserted

abandoned alone
quiet stirs the grieving heart
memories awash
