Desert Of The Heart – CE Wing

A guest of wind blew through
Bringing a bit of fresh air
Oh how the desert of the heart needed it
A bit of soft rain fell
Refreshing and sweet
Then in the distance
A reflection
Is that water?
I pray it was not a mirage
I quicken my steps
As I get closer
I see a palm tree
And then a pool of water
I reach it and sink to my knees
I quench my parched throat
I sit back against the tree
I survey the desert of the heart
And this one beautiful oasis
Then my eye caught sight
Of a gorgeous red hibiscus flower
Hope bloomed
Took shape
Inspiration returned
And all around me
The desert of the heart
Slowly began to bloom
Into a lush green forest
Alive with butterflies
Hummingbirds and squirrels
Life renewed
Spirit revitalized
Soul repaired
And the desert of the heart
Is no more
