Monday Poetry

By H.A. Handy

The desert surrounds
Filled with lush green things growing
People moving about their lives
Continuing on.

The desert surrounds
Voices raised in greetings
Smiles upon strangers' faces
Time advancing and retreating on tides.

The desert surrounds
Alone amid the bustle
Satisfied with something most
Dare not understand.

The desert surrounds
I see the way out
The path lined with daisies
Golden bricks upon the ground.

The desert surrounds
A table amid the gluttony
Strewn with papers, pens, and inks -
An oasis in the very center of insanity.
