Desert Rose Bloom

A river of water
Moves under the sun
A river of fire
Moves under the sand

River waters
Bringing spring to life
River fires
Bringing passion to life

River waters
Always been here
River fires
Always below dry sand

River waters bring forth
A multitude of green and flowers
River fires bringing forth
An exquisite desert rose

Untouched by the sun
Unknown to have existed
A gift of great beauty
For one who would kiss the fire

The rose is growing now
Never to be stifled again
Pushing up through deep sands
Separating the fire river from the sun

And once it blooms
Its fragrance will permeate the sky
And its beauty will paint the desert
A thousand colors under the sun
