Land Of The Desert

Little grows in this famished land,
its sad song eerily carried upon the wind
is seldom heard across a land spurned by nature,
as if, 
destined to be laid bare.

However, 
an indescribable beauty,
defiant of nature, is evident to those 
who take time to witness
what lies before them,
yet remain cautious of the danger  
this beauty contrives. 

Life survives precariously,
a testament to its resilience,
each day a challenge, 
this land of desert
offers safe harbor to none.

A sad song is eerily carried upon the wind,
each verse a warning,
enter this land of desert,
death alone is guaranteed.

    Mac, this makes me think of a song I love. The Shifting Whispering Sands. The Sandhills of Nebraska are as close to your poem as I can relate to. The only difference is they are a thriving cattle country if you take care of them. When greed steps in your desert is not to far behind. I have cried a lot as we would cross this land and see what was happening to it. I enjoyed your poem, Thanks for your kind words on my poetry. God Bless, Cile
