Petra



In the beautiful country called Jordan
there is a jewel named Petra


Like a beautiful woman
she hides her heart and soul


She is not easy to reach
but nothing so precious ever is


A man must first traverse a winding gorge
that descends deeper and deeper
into his own heart and soul


As he descends
he is illuminated by an infinite array
of color and design
that only a woman can create


If he closes his eyes
and opens his heart
he can feel the beat of her heart
and the light of her soul


And if she is willing
and he is ready
she will permit him
to touch her heart and soul


And they will become one
