A Desert Spirit – Ken Allan Dronsfield

With the moon rise

on an autumn night,

a chilled wind flows

through a nervous sky.

In the desert so cold,

near a Joshua Tree,

the sands are still warm,

from the hot sunny rays,

as scorpions danced

during a lazy hazy day.

The nightmares recall

the Phoenix is rising

reflect the mirrored haze

of a pious deity shared

near the Joshua Tree,

when sands were warm,

from the sunny rays,

in that desert of old,

religious fables relayed

Spirits of Autumn’s cold.
