Desert Rose…

In the desert of the mind
thoughts spread as sand dunes
that is bare and brown
and try to dissolve its colour
in the waves of dry ocean.

At times the silent whispers
escape with the despair
to an unknown horizon
that cart secret seeds
of dreamy prairies.

Off seasonal twisters
triggered by emotions
that swipes life clean
with its harsh swirl
which falls on its path
by the destined storms.

Despite all hostility
a heavenly aquifer
having a fairy simper
permeate soft vapor
that is hidden beneath
in the layers of cold desert.

With sacredness
sensitive heart kiss
all subtlest feelings
and promise its essence
that helps in germinate
a unique ‘Desert Rose’
that blooms and never withers
while withstanding all sort of
insane desert storms…
