Poetry--By ayaz daryl nielsen--United States

Young snowboarders upon the rash enthusiasm
of youthfulness, splashes of light in the alpenglow,
making mistakes, adjusting within a sense of the
genuine, and moving us further toward the sacred.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are no wrong words
There are no harsh winds
That can remove your memory,
shining friend,
From the hearts of us who love you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
