Old Photos 101

When our souls are desolate,

our tongues thirst for words,

to lift up our own hearts,

as encouraging shade,


from the scorching sun.

No person wandering,

can be truly alone,

as the desert knows how,

to guide us, to lead us,

in our seeking,

an occasional oasis,

of thoughts, a word,

from a friend, to strengthen,

then we are on our way,

more hopeful, but looking,

for the place,

that means more to us.

The peace of wholeness,

as the clouds form,

we hesitate, but they build,


promises delivered,

the rain comes,

and our hearts become more,

than just sand.

They are a palm tree,


by streams of water,

offering shade,

to others.
