In the Nocturnal Desert, Full Bloom. ~ Joseph J Treubig {Poem}

Moon Silhouette

All Around

Outside of nothingness

A sweet little melody

(We hear)


Whistles dryly

Inspiring quiet, violet budding thistles to swish and sway

(We see)


In the nocturnal desert, full bloom

Beneath our bold, great moon the finches swoon

(We believe)


Unsteady, not quite ready to taste

The nectar her song replicates

(We affirm)


The beauty of life sifting through constructed coarseness

Back to the beginning, churning fine particles

(We feel)


The weight of existence

Lifting off into an abyss all around that isn’t real.


Love elephant and want to go steady?
