Across Desire (poem)

Across the windswept desert of desire

Where silken sands tell tales of so much more

The dream of flowers waking on the shore

Spread scents of secrets never felt before


Across this sea of splendors to explore

Where whispers of a longing heart inspire

Each embering wish heavens to acquire

As sands of season never will expire


Across the realm which waits beyond those eyes

Those memories still waiting to come true


Across the satin purposes of sighs

Which wanders through those worlds of never knew


Just as the dawn brings on a new sunrise

I will be waiting waiting just for you

The music and video pull one right into the scene.

I kept wondering if her feet were getting too hot on the rocks and sand. LOL

Beautiful words!......A lover waiting for his one true love.

I surely miss those days of passion.

Such a beautiful poem, and what a lovely video. The dancer was beautiful and so attuned the scenery. At first I thought it was the Garden of the Gods, but then I knew it couldn't be.
