The Desert Wind (poem)

Updated on February 8, 2013

The desert wind does search the sand all day

For what its foolish heart allowed to go

For reasons just as distant as the snow

Which as its tears is very far away


The thirst it feels is oh so hard to know

The soulless springs are graves of its dismay

Its emptiness the vastness does display

What spirit lends such purpose to its flow


Oh desert wind the sun so sears your plight

Your search your hope your vision never veers

Though sands so challenge every youthful trance


But on that night the moon in fullest light

Through veils of sand the searched for dream appears

To join her wind in this their endless dance

      Awesome and beautiful.I like your poetry .You did great job here.The picture is awesome.It could be better if you choose oriental music or some music from Arab countries like this one for example from Algeria

      That video you posted has pictures from some places in Greece.
