My Desert Places


All desert trails lead to the sky

With every step on the path

“Closing on all points of the compass,”

Each becoming a projection of self,

Empty only if your inner space is empty,

A wasteland, only if you reject its warmth —

So much to give, so much to take away.


I give thanks to its open spaces

Where being along is only a state of mind.

Distance opens to the clear skies,

I can see as far as the eye allows

Bringing close that which is far away

Providing a mental compass on a cloudy day

Always connecting with my desert places.
