Camel of the desert
Plod across the hot sand
looking at the blood red sun
Feel the heat seeping
into your bones
from the blood red sun,
see the dunes
growing larger
engulfing the blood red sun
into night.

Night falls in the desert
and the sand begins to cool
The wind whispers stories
of magical lamps,
buried deep in the Arabian sand.
The sand is cold
on feet
through the thin soles
of sandals
the stars smile shyly
through the veil
of darkened sky
to light up the desert sand.

Camel prints
covered by the wind
vaguely show in
the sand
telling tales
of caravans long gone.

The sun rises
over the dunes
to uncover
the secrets
left behind
the Arabian nights.
