Waiting for Rain



White vapor, turns grey, 

builds over the mountains. 

Invisible hand stirs the 

atmospheric pot. Air, water 

particles swirl. Everything

coagulates, coming together 

toward one desire. Rain.

The land so parched, 

years of thirst in the air

for more living, more 

moisture in the soil, 

more greenery, more sprouting, 

more food from seeds, berries, 

flowers. More rabbits to feed 

raucous parties of coyotes. 

More bears from quiet

mountain to descend, risk 

contact with our cars, 

speed, noise, garbage, 

rushed time of human living. 

The sky roused, rumbles. 

A current of coolness makes 

silver dollar-sized Quaking 

Aspen leaves quiver. 

Everything waits for showering 

refreshment, arroyos to fast-run

as rivers, for the return of wild 

grasses' sweet smell. 

Everything wants fulfillment.
