Desert Moon

written by: Lea Wülferth



when you’re patient time goes quickly
“soon,” said the desert moon

the days and nights and seasons pass
and midnight fades to noon

it’s not as the crow flies
it’s as the world turns
that’s how we measure distance

if you’re in the sky
what are people below
and isn’t a lifetime an instant
