Moses watches sheep and thinks

Cold it is here-
desolate it is, and bare.
No one comes to Midian.
There’s nothing here

except family.
A partner to share the difficult things
and children (boys, two).
Together we are here

but no one comes to Midian.
Desolate it is, and bare
of all but family
and work.

Useful work it is tending little lambs-
it’s a living- though there’s nothing here
but sheep to tend and friends
and I will be here with them.

I miss the old place- but it is so hard
to be a prince without power
among suffering people.
I am here for now.
