Daily word count achieved = poetry treat. A tritina for the Secret Keeper’s writing challenge. The words:
DOWNPOUR | GENTLE | SHOOT | PEAK | YIELD
No gentle downpour this, of cooling rain,
But shafts of heat, sun-spears that bring us low,
From heights of haze, the shimmer falls.
Blue, the water colour of the river falls,
Silver, sharp, a tingle on the skin, the rain,
Red-gold, the sun at evening, dropping low.
As burning day gives way to night below,
The touch of evening, gentle on skin falls,
Almost as silver cool, moon pale, as rain.
Rain, with low sounds, falls.
