succulent bead
on parched desert lips
vapor rock
jagged tips left behind
as a dry moat
surrounding blistered dunes
gauzed by shattered morning mist

from salty blood,
thin hot air, sand -
come whisper blossoms
to deafen vision with color
armored cacti swing swords with tiny thrusts
glisten golden lizard's tail,
a gilded gust of a patient dragon

here breathes a kingdom mocked
where numbness cannot be felt

i'm almost in awe..the imagery is of the desert's landscape swells upon the mind, even without looking at the pic. the atmosphere is almost sullen, as though the "armored cacti" hushed the desert with its loud thorns..
