The Desert Man

so he spoke of places where
sharks and whales lay buried there
into a silent world we went
and learned about a life long spent
desert vast and hidden teeth
winds revealed them at your feet
sun of fire and curving land
burning colours over sand
once an ocean, a toiling sea
millions of years before you and me
where a giant, a king, a shark
the mighty Megaladon made its mark
with teeth the size of one man's hand
would terrorize this watery land
imagine the fear, imagine the awe
of those that dared steal past its jaw
and now beneath the sand and stone
amongst the fossil and petrified bone
the eye does see but seldom finds
a memory of life which reigned one time
and as the sun sets and wind blows through
the desert offers one last clue
out of sand and myth it climbs
a sharpened jewel which glints and shines
all thats left of this cartilage creation
and leaves the rest to your imagination

..inspired by a 2 day desert excursion searching for shark teeth and whale bones ....
