Forecast Says Rain or Moonlight

Feet find an exile path. Hands pluck a life-sized heart of stone from its downy green nest –before last months sheep came– before all this stubble &hay for backyards.

Feet find an exile path. Eyes plead for cloud cover, a strewn sympathy for this dry creek bed, but the sky’s full of itself &chokes on a perpetual wash of its own perfect cup.

Feet find an exile path. Tongues pray for a touch, or maybe a rain to baptize dogs of flesh &fill empty vessels which are vapors (or even less than that) every morning beneath this cloudless composure of poised light.

  1. What an appealing refrain or invocation. Rain for sympathy, for tongues, for baptizing dogs. Positively wonderful reasons for rain. I hope the clouds open.

  2. I especially like the way you have described the rainless sky here. Such a great choice of word pairings throughout.
