The Desert

The torrent pummels the fissured earth
Which in turn, soaks it all away.
Electricity jags across the sky
Turning darkness into day.

This desert boasts no living things
It is a ravenous, famished beast
That swallows everything that ventures near
For an eternal and horrible feast.

The rain offers no respite here,
It helps no leaves to unfurl.
It creates no mighty rivers,
To abate the dusty swirl.

No wings dare ride its empty skies
No thirsty creatures track the soil.
The rain trickles through the desolation,
To where the cavern rivers roil.

The eternal raging river beneath,
Flows into a world unknown
Ending like a mirror in the blackness,
Reflecting nothing to no one.
