"Spiritual Oasis"


still searching?
here is a wonderful oasis
so tranquil and serene
look how lovely the tall
palm trees surround her
creating the most exquisite
place for meditation
prostrate beside her inviting waters
so you may sip slowly and with utter control
as your thirst had replaced your skin
and organs leaving an empty shell
begin to drink life's nourishment
 
swallow
 
swallow          
 
      swallow                      
 
awww!...you feel the cold water as it
hits the dry back of your throat
no words describe that unbelievable
sensation
how long have you been without water?
did you feel in that single droplet your soul
kiss your tongue?
savour that sip and stop
place the round of your face down into
the peaceful wet coolness
s h h h...be still and just  f   e   e   l

your eyes flutter like a tuning fork
as it enters you, oh! where have you been?

you then raise your damp face to the sun
the heat penetrates you
exorcising the tired, sad inner turmoil
the moisture from your eyes begins to flow
soothing you
filling you
relaxing you
making you whole once again
no longer divided
no longer in turmoil
no longer alone
but at one with your tired body
your now quiet mind
and your exhausted emotions
           your joyous soul kindly returned
                      wrapped tenderly in life's purest of loves
