Lone Tree

In the New Mexico desert, a lone tree stands; solitary under high blue sky of winter days, of silent silver moons hanging in black veils...weeks pass, then years. The tree stays, a fortress in the unrelenting wind, a sentinel of the dawn: scattering clouds paint dreams at its feet.

"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair..." — Kahlil Gibran


  1. Good piece of writing. High blue sky, winter: really great images. It is inspiring.

  2. A lonely place to be
    In the desert as a tree.
    But life springs forth
    A soldier in the sand,
    Below the clouds' thoughts
    Of wishful dreams so grand.

    A nice verse. Thank you. Take care. Bye.
