Daily poem 42: Wishful thinking

Last day of May—already!—last 42. I wrote this one during our week of hot summery weather and was hoping by the end of the month it would still be an accurate description. Dream on, Jane. Straight storms and solid rain is all we’re getting for a while to come, it seems.


This sky is full of light


birds’ egg blue

behind a tracery of green


and far beyond this daytime screen,

sea-mirror, blue planet echo,

the infinite blackness of space.

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. There was flooding a little way down river from us, but we didn’t get it. The ground is so sodden though it sighs in some places when you walk on it.

  1. It was lovely while it lasted. We actually have a reprieve from the stormy weather. Blue skies, cool breeze. But storms this afternoon are predicted. One day your dream will be a reality. 🙂 Thanks btw for this month’s challenge. I enjoyed it. 🙂
