Although foreign to me
In these desert landscapes
I am mysteriously at home

I really like this piece, love how you end it 🙂
Thank you much! It was a unique experience to be in the desert. Not until now, 2 years later does words begin to find their way… I’m truly happy it reached you 🙂
Beautiful. I spent most of life in one desert or another, and now live in a very woodsy place. I miss the desert, and your photograph and poem touched me deeply.
Laura, thank you for your sincere words, I’m grateful that it touched you.
It’s interesting how certain places finds a place within us and lives on inside. I would think you carry the desert with you where ever you go, even in a woodsy (lol!) places. I sensed the desert wind once again on a rainy day in Ireland, how peculiar is that?!! 🙂
Amazing – I love the last line, and I share the feeling you express: “I am mysteriously at home, In french:” et, mystérieusement, je m’y sens chez moi”. It’s BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for sharing! Kind regard, FGM
FGM, I must thank you for your tremendously kind and warm words.
It was amazing to be in the desert. I spent 2 months hiking through it from North to South. I never thought I would be able to find the words for it, so your comment matters. Thank you so much!
