On the sand dunes..

With the recent talk about the trip to the desert, I recall a poem I wrote back in 2002 when I made my first trip to the western desert. It was a marvellous trip! The vast and spacious desert has always been a source of inspiration and inner peace for me. The chain of sand dunes and the surrounding tranquility are very calming and soothing to the soul..


on the sand dunes
admiring, wandering around
toasting from the tea pots
gazing at the lonely moon, devotedly
with its mysterious ring travelling round and round

with the new night
come about the music tunes
stirring memories and humors, till the light
climbs up the fixated high mountains
the stretched ridges, the unfolded hills

then descends the morning
with the voices praying for His feast
rising to His throne in awe
for His verses in action
His humble creation, the least

now the mission has been accomplished
with the total strangers as new friends
sharing rememberings, laughs, and stories
and yet, creating even more
over the unadulterated lands
