CALIMA

poetry by Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

The great Saharan's desert sands

travel west within the Sal

across the vast ocean's expanse.

Plumes of dust ride drafts of wind

hazing skies in hues of red

consuming air in torrid heat.

East meets West throughout the year

from sun scorched distant desert lands

to lush and verdant tropic isles.

 Natural phenomena

Calima

makes its presence known.

 

NOTE:

SAL (Saharan Air Layer)

Calima: Name given by the natives of the Canary Island for this naturally occurring phenomenon.

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
