    Amazing and stirring! Perfectly describes those terrible winds. If only they blew Hope into the scene instead of destruction. Thank you for sharing your talent!

  3. Mark this was a beautiful piece of Poetry. You depicted then Desert Wind swirling which is so magical. As well as the harm it can bring. I love the Ameythst Sand Graphic which is my favorite color. Sand Therapy is wonderful to use in the class room too!
    Love your work.
