Random Poem:

Psalm 2007

Rain on dust patters down
                  (You are my oasis);
               Patters death into mud,
               (You are greening rust),
                 Silver drops winking,
          (A shoot of vine cracking bone),
                 Blinking back lighting,
              (A river from a stone),
             Hurled by jealous gods,
       (My tent pitched against nothingness).
