Amid sun-bleached rock and barren sand

Green arises and makes its stand

Waters deep beneath the ground

A place where life can be found

Our lives too may seem that way

In need of an oasis amidst our daily fray

Into the Woods (Poem)

Into a wood we go –

Not of pine, nor spruce, nor firs –

Not into a dark rain-forest’s crush –

Where lush canopies the sky obscures.


Into a wood we go –

From the desert sands so bleak-

Into the oasis’ waiting palms

Their welcoming shade we seek.
