Summer Couplet




Upon my knees in desperation     the parched sand trickles through my hand
the steady drumbeat of Summer's song      rolls like death across the land

    Rick, this was excellent. I actually envisioned it was written by an African where drought is so common. You really captured the essence of a drought stricken land for me. Congrats on your win. Soupmail.
