Ginger steps, tender toes, sink…follow
Look behind cannot find
Disappearing into sugar bowl of nothingness.
Not too sweet take a bite spit it out
Poison dreams, dying….drying
Sucking marrow of abandoned desert bones.
Persevere, don’t give up lift those feet
One-by-one eyes at me don’t look back
Nailing winds of gritty breeze
A mirage perhaps? No, believe in me.
Striving, digging, sinking, deeper
Crystals in the sand cannot stop tomorrowland.
Out of breath no more rest
Step-by-step do your best
Rewards await in oasis state.
Sighing, sipping, liquid, dripping
Soaking desert dreams….sprouting life anew
One for me and one for you.
