Mirage

mirage
         Mirage, John Lyons (70 x 50 cm, oil on canvas)

How to reconcile
the syllables of silence
with empty vessels

In my mind
I crossed a Sahara
endless dunes

endless silence
I a passenger
in the wilderness

parched by day
by night shivering
under the stars

love the oasis
of milk and honey
on the eager tongue

at daybreak
the heart calculates
the distance

the horizon
the never-ending
thread

John Lyons
