A CAMEL


A camel
That walks alone
Across the desert unending
Has no pretentions.
Every camel is so.

A camel
That has a hump large and
A physique strong
Is a marvel to none.
No marvel at all.

A camel
Treads before me at times
Leaving a track to follow and
I carry my small luggage
No caravan is seen.

A camel,
A desert,
A track and
Me.
There is a breeze blowing from somewhere!

    I think this lovely camel... stands for some loneliness and humility. Hardly is he noticed by others, unfortunately....Is a marvel to none/ No marvel at all.
    Every camel has to be appreciated for the role they play across the desert, and surely they have many stories to tell us, human creatures! (Report) Reply

    If there is a track to follow and the knowledge of someone already travelled ahead through that track plus a gentle breeze, even the journey through the blistering desert is made easier! ! A camel, a track, a desert..... arresting images! A powerful poem! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
