The deserts of the world are amazing places. Dry and rocky and empty as they may seem at first glance, over millennia they have produced great cultures and civilizations. The animals and plants can seem exotic to those from more temperate climes.

The dry lands are filled with magic from the past and the present. Cities in impossible places have flourished, great battles have been waged to control them.
To get yourself started you might want to think of words associated with deserts: dry, arid, parched , scorched, baked, waterless, dehydrated, rainless, empty, crisp, hot, barren, sterile, sandy, rocky.

This week write about what deserts mean to you--the places, the creatures, the peoples. Or perhaps you will want to write using more metaphorical deserts--the deserts within or lives the seem dry and empty.
I look forward to what you come up with.
