The Enchantment

In the night
In the far of desert
With full moon
I wondered
I knew you were not there
But the desert
I searched
It was not you
But my wondering
You were not even aware
Of my pain and anguish

But the desert said
You are my guest
This is the beginning of the journey
A cupful of dust
Of blisters in the feet
Thirst unending
Travels to the unknown
You have chosen a path
That needs endurance
The path of love
Of sleepless nights

You smiled at me
You art still in your form
What the desert gave you
Did not it treat you well?
Seek me not

When your journey is over
I shall see you then

A wry smile
The deep black eyes
I asked
What will you do?
You live in riches immense
In comforts of life

Yes she replied
You are too naïve
To understand the beginning

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
