Desert Rose

Rating: 4.5


Bring the lost back to the right path
Desert rose with the silence voice
Whispering in the calm scented air
Mesmerizing, captivating, a guidance
Perfume sight for blinded eyes, in the sandy breeze
Trails the hopes to find way home
Back to the place of attraction
The hidden ambitious land

In the Secret garden of oasis

After revisiting this verse, Soul, I get another image. Perhaps Rose is a name...Desert Rose, a biker, traveling across country, back and forth, over a lifetime. First Rose becomes an acquaintance, a companion. Over time, the petals fade...Rose becomes a memory, and ultimately a legend. Magnificent work, Soul.
