A Wild Desert

Landscape Painted Desert
I am a lonely man in the desert.
The rolling sand is a vision of beauty.
It is a solace for my eyes.
The world does not know of my solitude.

The miracle of life is hidden here.

I have spent many years alone.
My knowledge of nature has kept me safe.

The works of men have no power here.
The wind and sun are always waiting.
I linger to see their natural wonders.
