heavy skies

thunderstorm watch
thunderstorm warning

winds and sheets of rain

ebbing now
dripping down

grey washing away

early summer evening sun

scatterings of shasta daisies

chords and melodies
strumming electrics

shadows of leaves
shadows on leaves
wind threading poplar

the geraniums are rioting
bursts of crimson/defiant hues
marching up
down
all around

petals and notes
in this prairie city
backyard
