Desert Love #Flash Fiction

He once said: “A city becomes a world when one loves one of its inhabitants.”

Well, I would like to know what makes a desert a world.

Once one steps in a desert one understands that the only love that can make the desert a world is the love for the desert itself.

*

It’s cold. It rains dry frozen stars.

There is no world without you.

The camel looks at me awkwardly.

*****

Lawrence Durrell, Justine: “A city becomes a world when one loves one of its inhabitants.

  1. Aah desert. The sort I carry within. *smiles*

    “It’s cold. It rains dry frozen stars.” — Only a wandering trabadour would know the magic of such nights, with which he weaves his songs.

    Throughly relished this piece!
