  • Oasis Site

    Oasis, bountiful site,
    Giving food in day and rest at night,
    Place where plenty and need meet,
    Inn in the desert giving retreat.

    Oasis, tropical site,
    Patch of cornucopia delight,
    Grace for those in between ports,
    Nature’s uppermost private resort.

    Oasis,
    lush tranquil site,
    Offering wanted peaceful respite,
    Time of grateful interlude,
    Where palm trees stand guard o’er solitude.

    Oasis, grim
    desert balm,
    Beautiful and serene, isle of calm,
    Protection from raw sandstorms,
    Weary wayfarer’s furnished dorm.

    I think I've got the picture now. I think it wonderful that memories - or imaginings - bring you such joy with the subject matter of "oases".

      After my army service I spent two years in Africa mostly on the high plains of the Cameroons and Chad where without water you wouldn’t last a week. The few oases there were not as beautiful as yours are but a sanctuary nevertheless.
