Veteran Poet - 1,108 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)


It lay long and winding,
Into nothingness,
With sanddunes allover,
Unending with mirages,
Of oasis, occassionally
Crossed by people
For the rock salt
To buy goods from the otherside
Of the great desert,
Carrying food and water
For months of survival,
Seeing some deser people,
Who lived in it,
The full circle taking
So many months,
But the travail an yearly episode,
The great desert
Somehow guiding
These folks, where the desert
Animals abound,
The desert's beauty undescribable.
