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.

                                                       Keith Garrett
