Desert

Amaranthine of sand
Camel hump dunes
contours of waves
formed by wind.

Arid, dry; vultures
lurk high, snakes hiss
mystical whispers
picture this.

Snake charmers
kalbelia dancers
showy camels
bronze, yellow visuals.

Intimidated by desert glory
feeling like a tiny speck
leaving footprints
on sand of time.

Footprints today, gone tomorrow
becoming a part of this sand
life comes a full circle
while funeral song is played
by God's band!
