Day 11: Desert

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about a very large thing. It could be a mountain or a blue whale or a skyscraper or a planet or the various contenders for the honor of being the Biggest Ball of Twine. Whatever giant thing you choose, I hope this chance to versify in praise of the huge gets your poetic engines humming.

Red sand expands
For miles
Below a saffron sun 
Footprints and car tracks
Disappear in a flurry 
We are the mirage 
the desert seeks with 
Wide hope 

Dizzy with awe
The brain is struck by 
The heat engulfs 
with serpentine 
Like wind
