Wave of heat rising

Into the blue clear abyss

Summertime desert

She’s made inhabitable

By man’s ingenuity

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Tis This Hell On Earth (Tanka)

Tis this hell on earth

The scorching sun, desert sand

Bleaching toughest bone

Helios hath no equal

This alone is his domain
