Oh For Some Rain!

Searing heat blankets my town

no rain of any sort on the horizon

the creek (what’s left of it) lying

still as death a thin film on its surface.

These late June days are longer than

I remember the sun high and hot

for hours and hours and though I love it

and even embrace the challenge of

shouldering through as if facing a

monumental onslaught of snow and ice

stocking up groceries and staying put

indoors for the duration I do hope

for a giant swashbuckling storm to roll

rollicking over the hills and bluffs

inciting the creek to riot upon its banks

a wind making everything twirl and dance.
