Damp morning


Take these small pieces of morning

damp with night rain

and place them in the stream

with the sun jewels of summer

the hot stars

fallen from a melting sky

and see how they shine

just as bright.

  1. I feel the magic in your words! It’s amazing how your descriptions take me to that location. I can feel and see the sights after a nighttime rainfall. We’ve had a few early morning showers here in the desert. The air holds the moisture and the smell of the wet soil has smoky undertones. Very different than anywhere else I’ve lived. ❤

      1. That’s a fact. We are in the rainy season now. Many years ago when I lived in Phoenix the rain flooded the Air Force base! It was amazing to see the damage and the flash flooding that occurred.
