desert-dry days

in my dreams
i taste clouds
drink scents of raindrops
on dry hot earth

watch teaser-clouds
on the Sierras
beg summer wind
to coax them
into our valley

i taste dry brush
a wildfire-burn
to the west

i touch tears
pray for rain

    I taste clouds, I touch tears…I am praying for rain for you all as well. It seems CA goes through these cycles of mudslides and wildfires. But now it is so scary watching on tv and grieving for people who have lost everything.

    Your words make me feel hot and dry down here in water sodden southern Australia. I wish Icould send you some of our rain.
