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 the 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.

                                            Keith Garrett
