Sabbath Rain

Large rain`drops
fall into the July dust
making small explosions
of grit into humid air
leave tiny craters

where they fall
no sooner begun than
done A summertime tease
or the divine reminder
fall will return

grass go green
again The burnt gully
flow again with the flood
that takes out bridges
to refill aquifers

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
