Desert Heat

Written by: Nalanti Goosen

The hot sizzling sun glowing down on the earth
The ground scorched for hundreds of years
Unbearable heat growing as the day grows older
Like a lake of fire the heat never ends

A Cicada singing it’s monotonous song
The shrilling sound invading your thoughts
Hypnotizing your body and mind till the
Only thing you can hear is its voice

The heat changing your visions
From the open desert plain into
An oasis protecting you from the sun
A haven for those who thirst cool water
