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

In the nascent light
shadows form on bark and twig—
spirits of the dawn.

in the land of subtle shadows
