Deserted Sands: A Writing Dare Prompt

This poem is in response to a writing dare set by @StoryBandit on Twitter. 

We dare you to write a 29-word poem using the following words: spouses, desolate, cavern, fondness. 


Deserted sands
Of baking lands
Desolate skins
Whipped by winds
In a cavern hidden
Visitors unbidden
Snakes cling to spouses
Sweet nesting houses
Such fondness belies
Their glinting eyes.

Is it really 29 words?

You had me second-counting myself! ;-) But, yep, definitely 29! :)
