A Poem by ayaz daryl nielsen

endless heat in southern winds                                                     
withered, grey forest leaves 
underbrush and grass crumble 
with the slightest movement                                                 
keen, rugged boars scour
brush and dry creek beds 
loose, clever magpies render                                                      
black-and-white guidance 
the rain still doesn’t fall
