Oasis …

I found an oasis,

a miracle of shade.

I looked into the limpid pool

yet dared not slake my thirst:

I was mortally afraid.

My heart would break

beyond repair

if it was a mirage

of my own imagining

that I had

stumbled upon –

love shimmering;

ethereal as prayer

in the desert air … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
