Thirty-nine finds the desert lovely,
Having little need and much desire.
In her there is a hunger for pure being
Reflected in the emptiness she's seeing,
The bare bones of an earth consumed by fire.
Years, like raindrops, leave the land still thirsty.

Nothingness becomes a source of beauty
In which one sees the end and the beginning,
Nemesis that does all life inspire,
Each spark of light that knows what's more enduring.
