Ayaz Daryl Nielsen- Three Poems

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang nor with a whimper
But with a sigh of relief

grandfather raven

oh, grandfather raven!
here you are, with us
for another season!
please, stretch your wings beyond
this harsh winter wind
and teach us
the hidden tales. . .


Often I go to the mountain
and lean against
quiet rock
quiet rocks that
rose from the earth 
millions of years ago

Again, a black brim hat
for damp morning mist
a quiet rock
to lean against
beneath aspen leaves
among aster, columbine,
pasque and penstemon

Maybe there’s more I can do
beyond what I have willed
and may have accomplished

Resting beside quiet rock
that rose from the earth
millions of years ago
Plenty enough for this fine day.
