rainclouds gather—
one more broken promise
in the making

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
