Hot & dry
Accompanies the survival of a group of wondering people.
Trom their wet and dark countries they arrive at a mighty desert by accident of aviation.
To get through
The experience and survive,
They must resort to travel by night and shade by day.
their water and resources for an unending journey.
By night they must travel,
And by day they must burrow,
To save the seeping force,
Of their life and sight.
Onward towards the empty line,
And up and down and down and up,
The walking harder than ever,
As they fade into the yellow.
The desert is not a place for all,
And those that stay will fill their boots,
And walk amongst the lonely roots,
Of sand and sand and rock.
