Hankering hordes of hungry hovering hawks haunt hoodoos in Utah. Underfed California condors cruise canyon cataracts for corpses. Nesting, starving swallows swiftly search for slime and straw in Saginaw. Gorging ravenous ravens roam Wrangell’s razor ridges in Alaska. Eager pelicans patrol and plunge for perch in pallid Pacific waters. Returning red robins round up ripe raspberries in Rhode Island. 4/1/2019 Writing Challenge 6, March 2019 - 6 lines Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Dear Heart
