The sun illuminates sprawling

sand, an untouchable, untamable

desert. A lone shadow distorts

glimmering beads that burn

naked, unsuspecting skin. Bare

toes dig deep, embracing cooler depths,

refusing to release.

One hand lifts. A farewell to blazing

heat, that endless wander’s immeasurable bliss in solitude.

Darkness settles, creeping over wild, shifting hills.

Coyotes howling echoes in open air, mixed

with the cries of owls – the cries

of life. Predators roam, headlights flash, an engine roars.

A single figure stands firm, unchanged,

unmoving – as constant as the sun.
