rains ahead!



cobble me a fig leaf,
scatterings of white blooms
upon fresh scent of summer rain

i'll find a song
stuck in my head, running
loose, a kite bowling over grey clouds

while whipping up
dessert of fruits and ice-cream

nothing is spoiling my day!

  2. I would love to have some rain... it's been a month since last time... we need the rain (and I would love to have it with ice cream)

  3. Oh, I love days when you have the spring inside you, and the outside doesn't matter too much. A lovely sprinkling of imagery.

  4. Your quadrille is wonderfully perfumed, Grace, and I love the line:
    '...running
    loose, a kite bowling over grey clouds',
    it's so joyful!

  21. It’s interesting, reading it seemed like something rhymed with “stuck in my head “ and I couldn’t find it, then oh! Duh! The title! And then wow, that changes the whole poem, get life in fast before rains, title added the bit of tension that heightened the joy in the stanzas. Masterful.
