Process Notes: Hannah over at Real Toads introduced us to the beautiful Mount Roraima, Venezuela/Brazil/Guyana. I did a little research and found where tourists are damaging the ecosystem of the mountain.

Wind Drop of Crows
Roraima ~ Carlos Garcia/Reuters
A voice travels as far as
the clutter it leaves
in the womb of pristine.
Conquest is a spiked brag
scarring the mountain face
while ancient spirits grieve.
Sacred has no value in silver coins
so greed steals the wind to drop
crows into the gods’ eyes.
In the cavern between earth
and where stars die prayers climb
incense curls to plead for solitude’s return.
