Drought

twenty months of drought
the fortitude of pine trees
blackbird’s plaintive song
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
shimmering heat waves
rising in the wilderness—
spirits cry as gulls
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
just before sundown
scanning the sky for rainclouds—
even foxes pant

written in the wilderness—
foxes sniff the lines

against the dark sky
colorful flowers and suns—
another festival


somewhere foxes are waiting
to lap up the fireworks ash
