Outside the Gorge

The Chasm deep and dark

The coolness hidden in it’s depths

Tries in vain to equalise

From the heat outside the Gorge


A footstep echos on stony bottom

A drip and algae

A fern clings to fragile existance

Hiding from the desert outside the Gorge


The sun it wins no battles

To light the bottom and the way

At most perpetual twilight

Preventing the mirages outside the Gorge
