On Shifting Sands - Martin Wiles


On Shifting Sands

On shifting sands I stand,
trudging ‘cross this desert land,
heart bulging in my chest,
wondering what will be left.

Sun beating down upon my brow,
supposing God has left for now,
one foot I place before the other—
no other choice given by another.

Mirages here and there between—
promising much but sight unseen,
halting and huffing to be blessed,
I pursue them nonetheless.

Then a calm I’ve never sewn,
swooping in from worlds unknown,
takes rest within my heart,
and offers me a novel start.
