Back To An Old Place - Poem by RIC BASTASA

it is summer
scorching summer
season creeping,
grasses are wilting
trees are shedding of
their last leaves,
what i see are bones
of trees,
skeletons of
the dry wind keeps
blowing the leaves
what i have is this
bald surrounding
emptied of their
beyond me are
brown mountains
vultures are
in the skies
eying for
death as prey
i sit upon a rock

i have no cover on
my head

they have left this
arid place

i am back
i am telling the
sand soil,
i have something
to write and
tell the world
about it

it is summer
in this vast desert
a long time ago
this was ours
and the trees are green
grasses verdant
butterflies flutter
and innocently
land on our
