desert travellers

Carpe Diem #1270 desert travellers (Karunesh)


weary camels rest
sparks spiral skyward
day's warmth retreats 

skirts whirl through dreams
to the music of the desert

    1. The music is lovely. I went on to find another youtube of this artist and listened while playing with an on line picture puzzle. Thanks for stopping by.
