The Desert Winds

'The drifting clouds and desert winds
Unlocks the inner chords of my mind
As my eyes gazed the desolate dunes
This desert edge one cold afternoon

A dream that I pondered for so long
And a wish that faded like a song
The hope that she will come and enjoy
This hushed beauty of forgotten joy

[Hata Bildir]
