From desert to turquoise ocean


In the heat of desert,
Who sees the shine of gold,
Who seeks an ocean
all,there,
is heat,
Is unknown.

Is there any water or a tree?
Where is home?
Blue is just a reflection of sky
In my thirsty eyes.
And green,
the soundless waiting
For the next morning light.

In the heart of desert,
sun consider as an enemy,
And cactus,
my best friend.

I crossed many deserts
without knowing,
The mirage was in my mind,
On the surface,
there was no way out.

So,
I dug deep,
Beneath fears and judgments,
To open,
the dry cracks on earth.
To see
The outside of my mind’s box
To see,
The green way of love,
In a middle of nowhere.

In depth of rocks and sands,
I heard the longing of earth,
To be free of a life time cycle,
Circling.
I dug deep,
To find water,
To meet my soul,
And return to beginning
To rest in peace.

There is no end
In digging,
Earth is round
and
waterfalls are our rewards.

Now,
all deserts are gone,
I am a fish,
swimming free,
in
the boundless
ocean of turquoise blue.
