Desert sands spread out before their vision

undulating hills and valleys of deep sand

that seemed to go on in endless waves

hot as the sun beats mercilessly down

being cold as ice as the night time falls

as faint voices in the darkness calls!


Vast empty space that is so sparse of life

an occasional oasis or is it a mirage

bedouins who lived in a sprawling terrain

travelling in camel caravans and camping

without water or food in the searing heat

walking and staggering on blistered feet!


Into the wilderness with little vegetation

except a few palm trees at specific points

through many sandstorms blindly faced

lost in isolation praying to be saved

when all was forlorn they clung onto hope

being rescued they had learned how to cope!


Saved just in time from the harsh landscape!
