As our feet carry us

After the recent heavy rains,
our feet carry us up the road.

Heat and moist wet air
layer our arms, our cheeks.

Every breeze a blessing
of evaporation.  Every patch

of shade beneath a roadside tree
a kiss of cool.  Let us admire

the cattails in full bronzed
cylindrical flower rising

out of hidden waters that sing
like a brook in the roadside ditch.


  1. “Every breeze a blessing.” Yes, thank you for the sweet reminders.
