A DESERT CAMEL'S LONE JOURNEY

Sing Songs

Water = Life .

PACIFIC OCEAN GIVE NO WAVES

A Poem for Meja Beckman

-----------------------------------------

Five and a half million minutes ago, when

Love was first born on the barren planet of my heart,

A deep well of water lay in surprised discovery...

It was a place

Where only curious visitors could take a peek and see

reflections of themselves

up close

and when they did,

I froze the frame.

I kept the reflections of what they beheld

and what I saw

to myself...

And I, the Lone Desert Camel

trudged along the sands of reality

as I still do...

But it was more than five millions of minutes ago..when

I grew up to love

Took her name and stored

all the water I could

for future use....

But time leaves everyone poor

once more

Now as I try to find how much

of the water of love remain...

Dry ...I find a vague emptiness

and no more memory of reflections of any face

that I saw and knew

along the passage of time

through which I went

Sometime in praises sometime in lament.

However ...Long after the memories left me

To my happy surprise

I came to know

That of all the seeds that were planted

then..

One did take root and grow...

After all these years spent in exile

with memories of someone I never knew...

The one who bring forth water to nourish all life is here..

A little drop of water

frozen in a bubble

Has become a vast and mighty ocean

for me to sail through...

Someone must have been true

Someone..whom either never knew...
