A man from the Desert!


I love you for your humanity and wise words
because you ~ i think~
are alone in this world

must be on this way
~alone~

a world that is too much to you
But you are there
inside a desert of rough hearts

a man that have a seeks of soul
a envy from others
a desire from the seekers of the things



OH!


It want takes you all
because you deal good with the drought
so the sand wants cover you
the sun wants dehydrate you
the dryness steals your sweat

when the wind swirls you
you say
Not now!
you stand up
and drink what's left of your perspiration
and seeks for a shadow
walk and resist
A man from the desert

    I ordered cake and I ate it too,
    but i found that just cake would not do.
    So i ordered pie and gobbled it down.
    Then i ordered ten cookies, dotted with brown. (Report) Reply

    every face given face in a mirror
    every leaf within wind
    left a print
    in a course
    of the wind
    every soul with
    her
    soul
    makes print
    and the love is crowned
    in the print
    love the rest
    in a desert
    in resist (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
