spilling unto burning sand…

A book called Summer lightening by Tamara Mc Kinley inspired this…

Strangers reading you,
———————

Reading a good book sweeps you into
A whirlwind of strangers you love,
Weather soaking your skin, sweat
And tears mingling, creating a veil
Of numbness blotting out sounds…

Incessant claims nonetheless crawling
Back frazzling your protective shield.
Hoofs and horses, plains and dust,
Docksides, travelers, fleeing,
Spilling unto the burning sand,

Pages shift… projecting the lives
Of drifters unraveling…

Yours.
——-

And as a coincidence, on my sidebar here’s what I just found!

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.
