Desert Run


I run.

To where the drone of highway traffic
Becomes the hum of desert insects.

I run.

To where footprints are outnumbered
By animal tracks.

I look back.

To where I can see it
All in perspective now.

I know I'm not the only one
Because mine are not the only footprints.

Jesus withdrew by boat for solitude; I run.  What is important is that Jesus did not dwell on his grief (for the beheading of John the Baptist).  Instead, He returned to the ministry He came to do.
