Desert Poem
Sespe Hot Springs

To the desert

we will go

come with me

where candles

cast a strange

and magic light

to lay in hot springs

to drift and dream

to play with water

and clouds of steam

up all night

in a timeless place

as we bathe

in desert fountains

underneath

these ancient mountains

we'll watch the stars

as they move

across the skies

or we'll stroll

on moonbeam'd paths

by desert streams

near cottonwoods

and tufts of grass

come with me

into desert lands

with stone and thorn

and sifting sands
