Poem 2 - The Desert


The Desert

Empty

Overwhelming

Nothing

And in that nothingness

I diminish

and expand with

each breath.

I am swept like a grain of sand

on the dry wind,

I have nothing

to tie me to the parched earth,

but then

I look beyond and see

there is a community of mountains

embracing and sheltering in the distance

I look out to the rocky pinnacles of the ages

reflecting the ephemeral formations of the sky.

I look down and discover

the treasures at my feet

the infinitesimal flecks of yellow, red and blue

tucked among the soft grey green

and the flaming fuchsia fireworks

defended by the spears of the desert

and I know

that life is

Abundant

Engulfing

Extravagant
