“Sahara”

Now breaks the dawn into my desert dream.
Soft threads of light bend into fading night,
Resplendent in its clarity.  Love’s scene
dwells with imagination and delight.

My love’s the rising sun; he melts cool air.
Warm breezes churn the camel’s path that swells.
A steamy haze along horizons flare.
Still warmer glows that fire one cannot quell.

Sahara blaze, mysterious and stark.
A passionate illusion warms my heart.
I hurry to his soul where in his dark
and tented caravan I’ll never part.

Slow, constant burn, relentless with desire;
and so for all whose yearnings are afire.
