Poem Prompt Day 2: Postcard Poem

The View from Here

An unrelenting sun bakes

wind-swept sand into extremes

of hunger and thirst.

Manna falls and I am blessed

into moving forward,

the story of my past obliterated

in the hope of a new dawn.

This poem was written in response to a prompt from Robert Lee Brewer at http://blog.writersdigest.com/poeticasides for the 2011 April Poem-A-Day Challenge.
