In the Desert

The desert changes with the fading of the light.
The landscape is enfolded in vermilion and malachite gauze that softens harsh curves and makes the mountains shimmer with a transient lustre; paling under the speckled blue-black arch of the sky.

Before dawn he sees the faint form of a woman beside him, her back turned. He knows her...and yet not. He lets his hand trace the airy curvature of her hip pushing against the dark gauze of her hair, until she dissolves.

A whisper hovers in her wake, confusing him - asking him to stay...just a little bit longer.
