Shine on desert moon.....
Falling rock in the distance awakens
time mellowed imaginations
Pale cliffs of melting butter in the full
moon underlie well lit constellations
Lonely howls of the coyotes bounce away
to eternal bliss
"I feel the very same way"....... I say out loud
I feel just like this
The desert life ....timeless... doesn't allow
shallow self pity
Not so like the country boy dwelling
in the isolation of the city
But lately .... the need of solitude has a death grip
on my inner child
And yet I know it can never be tamed
by this desert wild
Maybe ...just maybe I'll stay right
here until I become just like this
This desert ...
this stone mountain....
this lonely howling night
and this eternally peaceful
