Acrostic – Khamseen

When spring comes to the Sahara
Ifrit in spirals fly through the sky
Nothing can be seen, when gritty sand flys
Dimming the sun itself …

When did the devils reach Europe
Ignoring the traditions of time
Now will we too have the Khamseen,
Driving us into our homes?

Wandering from it’s ancient home
Insistently blowing for days
Northern lands rocked by it’s might
Desert breeze visits our land.


Inspired by the acrostic about rain written by julesgemstonepages I wrote about our wind which has been blowing since Friday.
