Arizona Dreaming - Poem by Gainor Ventresco Laney

When I finally let it go
after being desert wanderer to your oasis
I found my parched heart
absorbed with you
All of me has bathed in that light
transcended time and space
A desert rose
warm within cracked stone

    very nice. 'Oasis' and the cracked stone of the last line are a little incongruous to me. I think I wanted to be left with the image of the rose as the last thing...(unless the last line has a meaning I didn't get) (Report) Reply
