Deserts and Dromedaries
Splayed feet plod the dunes,
cross sun parched flatlands.
Enduring scarcity and heat,
dromedaries press forward
without a drink, carry us through
that wither our souls.
On snake-slithered sands,
we long for green,
dream a distant oasis of Truth
where date palms grow by a spring
that will quench our thirst,
wash away the dust.
In Jordan, a messenger
prepares the way.
Clothed in coarse camel hair,
John calls us from the wilderness.
