Mystery In The Desert (poem)

I find myself in a desert

Surrounded by unending sands

Monuments of time

Sparkling in the sun

Testaments of a life well lived

-

How did I get here

To witness the marvel

Of so many sunsets

The passing of laughter on the way

Refreshing oases of reflection

Refreshing what I see

-

It’s hard to see the footsteps

Those many winds have left behind

Which have brought me here

Of those which remain

Which ones are mine

Which ones are theirs

Which ones exist only in imagination

-

Does it really matter

To someone who searches

Thirsting for an answer

To refresh his heart

Lonely in me

-

Confused by my past

Dancing around me

With promises more beautiful ahead

I feel the weight of the desert

Bidding to me

-

Rest your weary head in time

Wash your soul in my glorious sands

Partake in the splendors around you

Be a part of the sparkle you made

-

I fell to my knees

At the truth to its words

I felt a teardrop fall

And the torrents which followed

Yet they were not mine

But the urging of others

Drawing me back to my feet

-

Carry on came the meaning

From Joyful oases of our past

Refreshing a purpose to all of this

Whispers in the waters of those tears

Do this for us

Whoa there, Mh, this is one heavyweight of a great pleading of one's heart and so beautifully written! Wow, really love this one, but still waiting for you to add your great imagery and video choices, but alas, this writing here needs nothing added to it for sure!

Exquisite! Up and more and sharing

Hugs, Faith Reaper

Your works are becoming introspective. They show thoughts beyond

time and space.

Amazingly beautiful, Martin.

The past is as much a part of our lives as the future. However, the desert can be both unforgiving as well as secretive in nature...
