I was in another landscape
like a grim, post-apocalypse world
where only my dog and I
were left to wander
the desolate, ochre coloured surroundings.
Sand storms change everything
from the light
to my mood.
would have brightened me up ...
Viggo Mortensen coming towards me
but that was the movie
and this is real life.
you'll have to be my hero for the day.
Post script: Tuesday saw the winds blow away the silty air and we got blue sky for a while.
