Lost Dreams

I asked my friends to give me subjects and five words unrelated to them. A few challenged me. This is the third in this group. For

Subject: Desert

Memory
Palms
Tattoo
Tribute
Course

beneath a luminous moon
gleaming bright against the khol-black sky
she stands

palms raised in supplication
words of a tongue long lost to mankind
a tribute to gods thought forgotten
spilling from her lips

the sands shift beneath the feet of followers
in the lee of the spinx
contemplating his riddle

moonrise brings a chorus of voices
each one a priestess in white linen
marked with the eye
a tattoo of devotion upon olive skin

somewhere in the course of time
these things were lost
we bring them back in our memories

  1. You’re making me reach for your thread, sweetheart.

    I’m being tempted everywhere I go.

    But this, this resonates. And I’m so tempted to ask for the story of it because you leave so much unspoken, which has me dying for more.

  2. *tempts your muse with chocolates and other good things*

    *gives big eyes just for good measure*

    It can be like a prose poetry kind of thing. Or a poem with longer lines. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Chocolate? Promise? *grins*

    I’ll see what comes when I start to work on it. I’ll consider it a challenge. I’ve always liked challenges.

    As for what I want? A story. A story within that story. You, and me, and a rainbow.
