poetry by Anne G
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.
makes its presence known.
SAL (Saharan Air Layer)
Calima: Name given by the natives of the Canary Island for this naturally occurring phenomenon.
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!
