Oasis in Mountain Desert

The mind wants to know

where we’re going

what inn we’ll sleep in tonight.

It wants to know

what diner we will eat in

and what’s on the menu too.


But really we are gypsies

we are Bedouins

traveling the great distance

each day a surprise oasis in the desert

a gift in its freshness

its quenching depths.


Such uncertainty

makes imperative the Guide.

Following Its precise Compass

we relax and watch

the crystalline snow-covered peaks

the daisies along the lane

and the shimmering blue of a promising sky,

all leading us Home.
