My Desert Love


Recommended Posts

Oh my desert love


Warrior of loneliness and solitude


You have shown me your secrets


And a new way to exist



Red billowing strands of silk


Resplendent against the golden dunes


Blowing out toward me


Like your quiet controlled passion


Which awakens things that I did not know existed


Deep within my soul



And your eyes speak of ancient wisdoms


As we stand within the swirling heat and dusts


For they have witnessed many things


The passing dances of men and women


Through the ages who thought that time was theirs to own



My wandering love


Who holds my face softly between rough and gentle hands


How still your knowing


How direct the impartation of your enlightenment


I feel the strands of your dark hair dancing across my cheeks


Soothing me


With the subtle fragrances of sandalwood and patchouli



You teach me conversation without words


You show me the expansive peace that comes from the sky


You reveal to me the language of the earth and the cosmos



When your feet lift from the ground


And you dance toward the full moon


And I am left alone walking these mysterious sands


I continue to feel your presence


For you have pulled away the veil


Revealing the interconnectivity of everything


Silver strands of pulsating love bursting


Between the universes



I look to the stars during freezing evenings alone in this expansive desolation


And I feel serenity


The touch of angels and ancestors


You are always with me even though I may seem alone


You have placed a glowing star within the centre of my being

Douglas. This sounds as an elegy, full of love, sensitive and, written from a heart. I loved the title. Maybe used one, but always so deep and powerful.


I loved this poem. I hope you are doing fine, my friend.
