Be Prepared to Swelter 

Be Prepared to Swelter

If you want to go there,
check your boots and your
water bottle carefully.
Find the map
that the old one gave you
so long ago
and do your best to
follow it,
though often
you will make the wrong turn,
go astray.

Be prepared to swelter
under many suns,
in countless rivers.

You will meet beasts
who have no names,
beings descending
from the sky
or rising in clouds from below.

They will tell you
how to continue,
what paths to follow,
but check carefully
what they say.

Sometimes you will fall
into canyons or caves,
and will not know
how to get out
until you see a
a faint light coming
from a crack or crevice,
lit wings beckoning.

When you finally arrive,
you may not remember
who you are,
what you were seeking.

It is then that you
will be wrapped
in radiance,
your body suffused with joy
as you cry out,
Oh, yes,
this is the place,
finally I am here.
