The Wordle with the following words given:
cells crows eroded last one scarce strength rain revisited rooted wove vegetation

Scarce rainfall
one of subdued
strength eroded
vegetation woven
in rooted cells of
dry countryside
where crows
last revisited

  5. Such arid scenery often evoke feelings of both beauty and sadness. I get a feeling of calm timelessness when visiting such locations in Australia.

  8. Really like your economic use for this poem about a place considered by some to be barren or even unwelcoming. I think your brevity underlines the reality that there is life here, but one has to take the time to look or might miss it. A closer look is often rewarded.
