Desert Nightfall

the sun gently falls
towards the beckoning
earth reds and
oranges fade to blues
as darkness slowly and
steadily marches across
desert backgrounds

life veiled by the day
awakens scurrying
back and forth in minute
dances of eat or be eaten
to the tune of lonely
winds whistling across
the vastness

somewhere in the distance
cries echo out
into choruses
of unspoiled harmony
both beautiful and
bestial
