With a contemplative view of the world
available to him as he sits at the desk,
he wonders about a universe unfurled
and all the aspects of a vision quest.
He leaves the confines of the desk,
wanders through the pages of a book
only to discover the arabesque
world available with just a look.
The desk, a look, a book, a chair,
journey inward of the mind
journey outward without care,
an arabesque universe to find.
And so, without leaving home,
the man, sans boots and hiking crook,
discovers a universe to roam
at a desk and in a good book.
