Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.
~Carl Jung~

 Desert of Destiny


Looking out upon the dry plains of thirst

Winds of decision blowing the tumbleweeds of life

Though no-one knows what goes on inside

There is nothing I can do


Sands of time sift across my feet

And the scorpion of anguish runs swiftly by

In search of the next victim with venom

Within the walls of turmoil


The mirage cool waters of truth

On the horizons of hope

Wavering temptations of desire

Forgetting time and place


Don’t let go

Hovering over the edge of contemplation

And beyond the sea of tranquility

The time we spend together’s gonna fly


Face to face with the moon of knowledge

Here we are on the Desert of Destiny

But there is nothing I can do

To keep from loving you


While standing on the plateau of thought

Avoiding the trees of pride

Reaching out, a breathless kiss

Down the path of intrigue


Comes the dew of tenderness

Softly adorning my hair

With the stars of light

There’s no turning back this time


Carolee Dennis-Woosley

The fine imagery that you have used serves to emphasize the theme of your poem, Carol. Well done. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes to you,

The full circle of emotions are touched in this piece. Love is something we should never turn back on when both share the same feelings. Wonderful write.

Stay well and keep writing

Likened to the weaving of a

I feel lots of movement in this poem. There is much happening in here, and to express the motion in the form of 'tumbleweeds' and sand across feet, scuttling scorpion of 'anguish' (that is some vivid illustration for emotional sting!). Nice progression from thirst to oasis, Lily. ~~ Diana

This takes us to the world of fantasy where love takes many decisions. You fear has abated and "there's no turning back this time"

Excellent, very excellent indeed

Great! You are bravely following your heart and are ready to truly love. This is some super fine work!

Love ya!

beneath these metaphors of mindfulness lie symbols of subconscious thought submerged in archetypes of the unconscious... while looming large on the horizon is the nascent nuance of eccentricity with a radiance of phosporescent phenomenology...

I enjoyed your rich and radiant foray into this highly allusive artformidable landscape... nicely done, Carolee

It's wonderful how you weave the words of this song, together with the fantasy of your own words to this beautiful Desert of Destiny

"In search of the next victim of venom / Within the walls of turmoil"

Knowing al that, Carol, still there isn't one thing to be done to keep from loving him. We have to, we must, find out for ourselves.
