Every note, riding on a crisp, morning breeze.

nature-like
by Abdul Malik
I
the fire
the water,

and
nature...
what's in her?

air,
the earth--
we create;

we 
upraise,
we destroy.

she's
reborn
every spring

why 
do I 
have to die?

Raked in...

The Stream

The scarlet wolves followed.
Their light came from the trees,

with first overpowering light.
