Dreams in the Desert

August 25, 2013



dreams in the desert

that’s where they lay

beat down by the sun

each and every day..

left alone to whither

and eventually die

if not brought to life

by the will to survive…

thunderclouds are needed

to form and burst

moisture is needed to quench the thirst

time for dreams to take flight

for dreams to be seen and come back in sight..

    ‘Beat down by the sun’ ‘moisture needed to quench the thirst’ – conjures a picture, similar to yours. 😉

    I’m extremely inspired together with your writing talents as well as
    with the structure on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    yourself? Either way stay up the excellent high quality
    writing, it is rare to peer a nice blog like this one nowadays..

      Hello Matt! Thank you very much for your comment. Fro thirty dollars you can purchase the ability to custom design your blog here at wordpress. It gives you the options of many backgrounds and choice of font styles. I am pretty picky and look often to see if there is something that will catch my eye. My header is my design from a photo I took of a sunflower and then used Picasa to process it. I am still learn and it’s a lot of fun. I often use my photos for either backgrounds or headers. WordPress offers a lot of themes for you to choose from. I have noticed that they are charging for many of them lately. I like free! Anyway, thanks again and be sure to visit..

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set
    up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?

    Appreciate it

      It’s all been a learning experience for me, but after a little trial and error, it really is easy and so much fun picking out a theme, look for your blog. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
