Desert sands


Desert (Photo credit: Moyan_Brenn)


‘Neath the burning sun
Shimmering air meets blue sky
Light purifies all
I watch sand grains dance and roll
Marking the passing of time

  2. Very spiritual response on Takobuko’s tanka Imaginator. You’re a true tanka poet.

    Very zen-like. Because of your header photo I see you plummeting into the sand that will certainly mark the passage of time. 🙂
