The Desert - Poem by Leah Ayliffe
The purple sky grew darker as it emerged from the left of the horizon
White lightening flashed through the sky
But it was nothing to be afraid of
It was beautiful.
In the desert which usually gives the sense of decay and dry air
It feels quite calm and refreshed.
The horse is content tied next to a palm tree
Which didn’t seem to mind that it was the only tree for miles around
A famous ladder lazily rested next to a box that held the rainbow
Ready to be released back to the sky when the time arrived
The violets and vines that grow entwined around the ladder dream of sunny days
While waiting for rain.
That’s all that remains.
