The evolution of perspective, the chronicling of journeys, and a series of overwhelming thoughts.

red

Child of the stars, except for God, that which does not burn.

 

Walked- 

on red earth

wrapped in a red blanket

he is at peace, he is patient

 

Sang-

proud happy strong, 

smile like a sunrise, 

lively cattle, laughing children.

 

Inception-

behind him run messengers

with bulging eyes

full of holy books and good advice.

 

Dawned-

the new road 

ready to be rolled

A chameleons tongue for thunder

 

Stop-

with jeeps and trucks 

bringing the cattle ranchers

ostrich farmers, cash crop flood

 

Settle- 

a shanty town

with fast food

a bar, a burn
