Poem: “Rhinestone Beauty”

Rhinestone Beauty

Endless sandy roads

I turn my steps
Behold such blinding lights

White sun glare, sharp shapes
Glistening far away that heat rising day

Gleaming desert sun lakes
Glass ocean floor

Scrapers like stainless steel flowers rising tall
Proudly brushing sky ceilings

Every building wall reflecting
Every human eye gazing

Rhinestone beauty
Man made city

Mirrors, mirages
Reflections and lies
