Ziggurat Tour

Sumerian sun
through the City of Ur
a sandstorm

gray sky
looking through shades
for color

desert dawn
the only colors
a mango sky

cold morning
the desert sun
atop the Ziggurat

Abraham's home
crumbling ancient bricks
beneath my feet

noonday wait
the heft of PPE gear
on my back

lonely walk
in mounds of rubble
looking for...what?
