Thirst

Thirst

.

Dry heat dances above the tarmac

Eyes burning, searing, searching

Dense bush along the roadsides

With glimpses of clearings as we ride

Dirt replaces tar and rough replaces smooth

Saplings predominate

But some giants stand proud and tall

Greenery is mostly grey

Riverbeds lie yawning, boulder-strewn, bone dry

The rains are coming by and by…

Footsteps

Post No. 874

Footsteps

.

A trail of footsteps lead

across the fine sea sand

washed away in moments

by the incoming tide

gone without a trace

love letters long erased.

.

I walk along the high tide line,

mine are the steps i leave behind

my heart bleeds with every beat

consumed by memories

of a love that died

that couldn’t last from tide to tide.

.

The weight i drag upon my back

in a sack i cannot share

mine to own and mine alone

a task to shoulder willingly

‘til He shows me the way to go

smooths the path for me to follow.
