"Taking Thought" #9

         (for East Ontario summer days)

Garden nap pops open
into weird light, bright
and tensely alive. Waiting
for raindrops from stone dark
grey cloud cover, each flower
strains forward into
wet thick air, hot
with the moment; each thing,
composed of color alone,
shows what’s there’s not there
but there’s dreaming in it still.
