Dust Devil 

Summer Seduction


With a subtle breeze

Heat embraces

Surrounds, engulfs

Feeling sensuous 


Seducing the body

Dulling the senses

Changing perceptions

Images appear from nowhere

Making no sense

Only confusing

Keep walking!

Bathed in sunlight

Betrayed by the warmth

Bewildered – the mind says

Rest – just rest for awhile

Sleep comes easily

Death follows quickly

In the desert heat

— Gail Bornfield
