Daily poem 42: Sullen sky


Summer holds its breath


in the clouds of this sullen sky

this damp fractiousness


the blooming and the fruiting

quiet beauty unseen

behind veils of rain.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Here, too. It’s supposed to be hot and humid today. Then from Thursday through Sunday or Monday we’re supposed to have thunderstorms every day.
