Abecedarian poem

Handwritten poem

Airy blue coasts dune endlessly, fiercely glinting. Humming insects joust; kite-like monarchs nibble on petals. Questing rivulets splash towards underworlds, violet where xanthos yields zags.

Thanks to for the prompt to write an abecedarian poem - I had great fun trying my first ever, and realised belatedly that I should maybe have picked out some likely X and Z words at the outset! Still, it's set in Greece so "xanthos" is totally legit, and that's my defence and I'm sticking to it.
