badlands

Out here

I could slip away

Fall through the cracks of

Time and existence

Mesmerized

By all that it is,

Unstirred and forsaken

Cosmic creation

A sweeping silence

That deafens the demons

And nourishes the soul

These are not bad lands

  1. You’re right. Your poem captures the essence of their beauty,
    and they are not “bad.”

  3. Ahh….an ode to desert. I find the starkness revealing since there are no lush distractions.
