1 Lights stab night Cocks call day Snakes hide. 2 Sun hates sleep Winds roam dry Lips crack. 3 Air wears dust Eyes lose tears Streams dry. 4 Trees hate leaves Shrubs choose death Fires rage. 5 Dark strikes day Bugs praise night Doves roost.

It sure is dry...not far from the Sahara desert. Thanks for commenting.

I like this one a lot. For me it paints a picture of the unchanging, giving the reader a feeling mixed (and this is just me) with lost hope and an appreciation for natural beauty at the same time. Keep it up mate!
