Ship of the Desert

dance
like a peninsula tied to my fixed existence
because this ship of the desert
is leaving for the woods again
where it ought to live from its own savanna once more

And there I am….packing…again!
Making everything ready for our trip to somewhere.
Will I find my home this time? …I do hope so..

footnote: The poem and photograph I made in 2009, but it holds perfect relevance for me again now..
