Desert Rain

Beyond horizon canyons
the sun cloaked in an amber haze
casting colored shadows 
across steaming sandcrete 
baron since an ancient age
when oceans filled its expanse

Cloud evaporation cooled sweat cleansed skin
burning like hot blood
mixed  with dirtand sand,fail to form mud

Mirage shade stretch and fade invisable
yearning these is trivial

An ancient tale offers solace
its wisdom warped like an evesdropped story
infused with myth, its promise
"The heavens shall rain oceans shall fill desert plains"

An ancient burial grave
the desert's captives tortured desperate
thirsting yearn raining skies blue as ancient times
growing gray as storms from miles beyond horizon canyons
shadowed by skies dark as night
