A sudden melody rings across the stillness

The whole world rolls in slumber

Could be in a sleep deep

Or a nightmare...

Even the restless river

Relaxes for a slower journey home.

In the midst of barren vastness

The traveller's footsteps

Hide from the waning moon shine.

But the wanderer

Too weary to sleep

Is not alone.

A solitary instrument plays

Favourite notes dancing on still air

A whiff of chillness as the melody meanders.

Cold dew covers the ragged stone

Gems shining with the sparse stars.

Myriad rainbows in the middle of a desert.

The sauntering song seeps through the sifting sands...
