This theme and the following poem is in part inspired by the sweltering heat enfolding much of the United States and in part by the beautiful poetry of awakening by the Sufi Mystic Rumi.
I begin with a poem of invitation from my Enchanted Oasis to yours:
The Enchanted Oasis
Come to a place
You Know is Waiting for You
A place where you choose
the questions of your life,
guarding those diamonds,
bright as guiding stars,
in the dark night of the crimson desert
of your own making.
You may be parched,
slaked with thirst,
Dying for a drop of refreshment,
from a Long Journey.
You may be overburdened,
carrying a load too great and mighty,
for your delicate gentle shoulders
to Endure a Moment longer.
You may be swift and sure,
speeding along on a black stallion,
through the tall dunes of the tawny desert
with the ease of a Master.
You may be a light as powerful as the sun,
wandering through the delights of life,
a living expression of the Enchanted Oasis,
in your every word and deed.
It matters not.
At the Enchanted Oasis
All are welcome.
have a place at the table
the feast of Awakening.
