ACROSS THE DESERT, I TRAVEL
My challenge this day, a trek across the always
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
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.
