Song of the desert
Laying on a rock radiating heat from the day
Listening to the sounds of the desert night
Vision obscured by the growing darkness
Forcing your other senses to awaken
A warm dry wind blows across your body
The smell of dust tickles your nose as it settles on the ground
Little feet scamper across the dry sand
Desert mice dashing for cover from the quiet
Whoosh of the mighty owls talons
The yip yip yow of coyotes hunting in the dark
Constant drone of crickets endlessly calling their mates
Fall silent when you disturb the atmosphere
Causing the night to hold it's breath
The cacophony erupts in your ears as the desert exhales
Music of the desert night begins again
