Solitude

Solitude short poem

The colors of the desert sand
Transformed from the heat of the sun
And just a few species of trees
That gently sways in silent breeze
Surviving from the harsh climate
Of this barren and arid land
I have learned to love it’s beauty
The solitude that it gave me
As I waited for the pouring rain
In this dreary part of my terrain.

A few words and an apparently simple scenario but the meaning conveyed is so deep..it takes talent to be able to say things with so much simplicity and yet carrying so much depth. Terrific!

Once, in the desert of a foreign land, I collected flowers of weeds ignored in my own land. True sentimental poem.
