Oasis

It’s not easy to believe in an oasis over the next dune

Miraged as I’ve been

Exposed to elemental forces

Burned

Relentlessly optimistic

I picture an aquifer beneath these parched sands

Cool water slumbering in the dark

Welling up and over the desert

And if it’s not this dune

It’ll be the next
