Today's Poem: A Dry White Season by Mongane Wally Serote

A Dry White Season

For Don M Banned

It is a dry white season

dark leaves don’t last, their brief lives dry out

and with a broken heart they

dive down gently headed for the earth

not even bleeding.

it is a dry white season brother, only the trees know the pain as they still stand erect

dry like steel, their branches dry like wire,

indeed, it is a dry white season but seasons come to pass
