"If Not For A Reason, Then Just For The Journey" (by Joe DiMino)

As always
When feeling scarce
I return to the desert-

There is resilience here
Unsurpassed in the lands
Of plenty; lost among
The many are not only
Individuals, but multitudes;

Heat purifies-

Wind not only carries away
But retrieves-

A meditation 
What one finds 
In the washes
Everything thought high
Ends up low-
From a speck of pyrite
To gold
In one hand
The bone of a life
Is something's world
Eroded away

The Barrel Cactus
Gives me new sacrifice
A lesson I will forget again
I am certain
If not for a reason
Then just for the journey
