*The following poem is offered in response to the One Stop Poetry Sunday Picture Prompt Challenge. This wonderful prompt was shot by photographer Iquanyin Moon, featured today on One Shoot Photography Sunday. Come check out some great shots & the interview by Chris Galford! 

You cannot see me
Hidden beyond the frame
Roasting on a sun-caked dune
So far lost to ever explain

Spare white t-shirt
Patting sweat off face
When beads fall into
Unctuous sizzles
Shrinks in form
Penumbral stains

Kind of like us
I guess
Meaning does not stay
These footsteps raised
Over journeys gone
Hallucinating from scorching rays
As the sun beats merciless
And I whisper her name
Feeling we may only find
Footsteps over someone’s grave
