Swimming in Sand

DRY
Noon's Saharan heat
sears the yellow fringe-toed sand skink.
Stinging simoom beats
sword dunes swept in serried bands.
Lizard's plunge is fleet,
swims beneath saltating tanned brink.
Sinusoidal whip's
subterranean dip.

WET
Should one chance to meet
supersaturated sand sinks,
Glide their surface sheets,
spread the body's weight, expand.
Stay unsettled feet,
float the span to countermand links.
Stirred suspensions grip,
skimmed solutions slip.

    Two big part, Dry and Wet..In sahara tale you make a rhythmic verses rich with your vocab. So smooth like a best place for dolphin swimming LOL joking_Unwritten Soul

    A fine energetic write, I raise my claw, for cooling and salute. The alliteration in the first verse was sweet and the concise discussion of opposite sustained and suspended the verse and reader above those parched and fluid sands.

    Excellent write Diane, like the opposites effect.

    What a surreal adventure in the real world.
    Many of your poems are favorites of mine,
    this one moved into the top ten. And no way,
    no how will I write a poem called Torrid Skink Affair,
    however Lizard Love might work. The contrast
    between dry and wet was brilliant.
