I love anything about the desert and this is a real treat, especially so, 'the jackals stare in night-time glare to bask in meaty game', just excellent. Accolades galore for this one.
You are in fine fettle, I hope.
Your creativity has breathed life and nuance into what for many is just a sea of sand.
What a superb tapestry of words that gives beauty to even the dark side of the Sahara. The third stanza in particular was to me creative genius. "As camels boast to hold the most: A toast of humpy rain" (I would never have thought of a line like that). The last stanza is just a perfectly rounded finish to a captivating piece that made me see the Sahara in a much different light. Has to go on my favourites. Milly x
