The Desert INvites a journey withIN by Michele Lee

(blog Michele)

The desert does not invite
leisurely hand holding
or carefree play, or bare feet splashing.
Too many things that can poke
an eye or peel back the skin.
Those walking in the desert
must listen, pay close attention,
and step with care.
No orange or red leaves
to kick, crunch, or dive into.
No soft grass to fall onto,
where lovers lay and love –
staring into eyes or shapes
floating in the everchanging sky.
Not a lover’s landscape,
but an invitation to journey within
that does not plead or beg
for this unearthed union.

I will go my way,
slow and meditative.
You go your way,
fast and intended.
Much life to see in each living shrubby tree.
Much ground to cover in this vast open land.
Walking in divine nature,
honoring our true natures.
Aligned with higher self,
our spirits will be,
when we meet again
in the middle of the road,
next to this prickly tree.
