Alauda

On upward drafts she
soars on high and sees
the distant shorelines crying
and the lonely song
she's singing belongs
to wetlands that are dying.

Skylark, rise and fly!
Sing a wish and I
will say a prayer for you
and all that still care
for all that we share
on the shores of Kolleru.

    Beautiful flow to this piece, Craig; you are very good at that--making the words almost liquid as they come off the tongue. Congratulations on your win.

    Firstly congratulations on your win it is an HONOR to share top spot with you Debbie and Ron. Secondly I had to go and research the word Alauda, which of course now I know it's a type of lark of which you wrote so well and remarkably so.
