Fevered desert

The challenge today is to let reality and fantasy blend a bit in the heat, then find a shadowy patch under a tree & write your poem. Visit dVerse for more poetry.

“Fevered desert”

This is where the porcelain horses gallop,
rasping in the wind as Pachelbel orchestrates
his Canon in D. This is where mocking woodwinds muffle
thundering ironed feet across peat and
dared riders leap adagio and free over twisted falls.
And this is where my misfit toes dig
inside cooling sands and where I am lulled
inside the fevered painted sky.

  1. Can hardly bear to look at your hot picture, even though it’s so beautiful – it conveys so well the extreme heat. And the poem is a wonderful fusion of fantasy and reality.

  2. It’s almost a necessity to dig your toes into cooling sand. Canon is now playing in my head as well. Nice write that really brought my senses alive – feet in the cool sand and music. -Mike

  3. toes in the sand and lulled
    inside the fevered painted sky…this sounds pretty perfect to me…love how you weave the music and horses in…very cool

  4. And this is where my misfit toes dig
    inside cooling sands and where I am lulled

    One has to go for it and take what ever comes after! Life is there to be challenged! Nicely Sheridan!
