Serene hopelessness blown over miles and miles,
The sand giving rise to both
The desire to escape,
The peaceful acceptance of eternal nothingness.

And suddenly –
Civilizations sprout up,
Fed by isolation and compressed by it;
Barriers of nature
Struggling to conquer
Unyielding passion and imagination
Of the human heart.
