Dust-storms of yesterday, coughing daisies
praying for wet faces and feet, for clouds’
pregnant outpouring of “loves me, loves me!”
–and parched roses get stingy with scent. Then,
and rumbles dark
When dogwood branches are heavy
with blossoms and rain, and the goldfinch
listen under their umbrellas, soft sigh
in midsummer petrichor as each sense flies.
It’s been raining all day here. The dogwood video was taken on Monday, at my dentist’s office, before it rained, but look at those blossoms!
