Haiku with a difference: Camel

A flock of camels in the desert

I put several similar haikus together  to make a longer poem. It still follows the 5-7-5 rule.

(Sharon Hughes, 2010) 
Beasts of burden yearn…
they throw off their heavy load –
Drowning in quicksand.
A desert ship sways
gauchely across sandy seas –
Sand storms no bridle.
Sand dunes summon her –
Quicksand threatens to capsize
her – heavy laden
Ebbing paths burden
a daring passage – water.
sandpapery eyes – hope.
