Namib – A Poem

Namibia – Image by Jo Wiggijo from Pixabay

Arid land longing to be a lake again, the Namib’s lineage

An ocean of sand, crust-fallen waves, an unwilling mirage.

Shifting sand so hot; it builds daily, its own Axis Mundi forge,

Blowing glass into heart shapes; kissing heat from Earth’s axis

Yet, among its stone guardians and wood sentinels; life persists.

There lies an oasis in the bliss of unconditional love; a hope unseen

Like the specter of the Namib; in the parch of might-have-beens,

Resurrecting the dust of the bones of a forgotten lake; lost love

Memory oceans, warm phantasms,

Into an oasis of unwavering love.

    1. I am glad you liked this one. One of my favorites to write. It seemed to take my “pen” and write itself…if that is possible.
