Free Verse: Wind Devils

Free Verse

Wind Devils

I saw wind devils

in North Africa!

Shaitan

during kamsin

 wind raised the sand

you couldn’t see land, sea or me…

the howling

would get on your nerves

powdery dust

enter under closed doors

useless to vacuum

for 50 days my brown carpets

went tan…

I’d cover my head and my face

whenever I went out…

the wind devils

danced up and down the streets…

Gaddafi was still young.

  1. nice Poem… reminded me of Herbert’s Dune series… the word Shaitan evoked the images in my head… Herbert borrowed heavily from terms in Arabic and Hebrew in writing the series.
