remarkable


dusk falls

swift and light

a balm post raking sun


in the west

clouds accumulate

proffer shade

caress the horizon


rain


this pocket of air thickens

as the douse abates

sunbaked zero scape moisture

evaporates


foreign humidity

lingers across skin

carries to the nose

delicate

grass blade

soil

leaf and stone


sudden wind presses

spins

dries

in it, birds scurry

for day’s final taste

sustenance

to last the night


what is a day anymore

if devoid of fuel to ignite – the space

the chance to write? it is

but the passage of time

unmarked

and unremarkable
