ACROSS THE DESERT I TRAVEL
My challenge this day, a trek across the always dangerous desert,
Pack my things, just myself and a backpack complete with all I need.
Dressed In jeans, hiking boots, long sleeved shirt, and hat I am ready,
Early morning as the rising sun stares down upon me, time to move.
Such a feeling to seem alone In the world step by step through the quiet
Morning while nature does its own thing, I am watched as I walk.
Across the desert, I travel with a breeze swirling around what surrounds,
The heat of the day has not yet arrived as I continue my quest through the desert land.
So much beautiful and unusual plant life, animals seen from a distance,
The sun Is moving, day Is disappearing with shadows forming upon this land.
I’ll soon make camp with the animals of the night, a fire so bright, warm with light,
When the morning comes then I will continue my journey until I am done,
Across the desert, I travel.
