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.
