Songs and minutes, smoke and maroons
Swirl and shake in a majestic monsoon

Words and winds radiate from this relic
But it's heartily broken, hardening into a brick

She's surrounded by specks of sparkling sand
But notices nothing in this loathsome land

She feels frustrated-- thrown for a lonesome loop
In the desert and deserted, all she does is stoop

It's not a secret that she's surrounded
But how she remains alone leaves her astounded

She looks, and listens, and does legwork
But somehow all she sees is dust and dirt

There's not a place of paradise-- one oasis
Except for her lone entity that can grace all graces

Her feelings have descended, discouraged by not a find
How can a sapphire so beautiful be so blind?

    I like the conflicting images that fill this write, BD. Sounds like someone who is very confused and many of us can relate to these feelings. Very nice! Happy Easter, Carolyn
