Music in Desert

"Music in Desert" by D. Bezmelnitsin, 2011

The music in a desert
wings your soul
divine Ambrose,
the sounds tone by tone
dropped on the sandy spots
leaving trace, and path
was moisturized oasis of
breath and ‘om’…
Your toes touched by stones
of long time forgotten
relics of wars,
artifacts of hollow bones
awaken the spirit of
dunes, and past’s become
closer and pulled the
strings of heart .

A few could survive
the death imposed
its seal
over the seeds
ground, and the will
showed in heaven
the shift in clouds
of bitter tears…
