I am an artist bound only for the poet's glory....But only achieve half of the success that my dreams aspire to find, And to what do the whispers tell me of this failure...To what end to they haunt my eternal dark dreams...

Wind sweeps the sand unending,
The barren of nature unrelenting and unforgiving.
Woe for those who are lost in sorrow desert,
left to feed the starved buzzard.

They are given a dusty tomb...

Flesh eaten by scavengers with little concern,
only to become bones to feed the earth.
Forsaken by dusty blizzards,
forgotten by all except sorrow desert.

Sent back to mother nature's womb...

The sea of crimson sands,
Infused with the storms devoted to death of man.
Tis where the vultures shed their feathers,
For they are the only ones who can survive sorrow desert.

My second sonnet. Wrote it write after Red-Wind hill, I imagined myself in the eye of a sandstorm. Wondering how horrific it would be...

Wow! I can really see what you are writing.  I feel the same as I did with Red-Wind hill. It needs to be a tad longer.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. -Bruce Lee
