Summer rain


Summer rain washes dust

cracks & eddies turn to torrents:

high above the swallows wheel

cherries swell in moisture


Yesterday earth was parched

a cricket ball upon the green

yesterday you held my hand

summer’s loving came to rest


in the twilight.


The rose is vibrant red again

& candy pinks are dripping gold

short sweet span of summer rain

fills us with a loving cup


of colour.
