Random Poem:

after the rain
unknown

after the fog
 1
clears, the sun again
 2
the cornstalks
 3
whisper
 4
another mid-summer
 5
prayer, to a cardinal
 6
roosting
 7
on the low boughs
 8
of a douglas fir
 9
who’s nestled guilt
 10
weighs heavily
 11
inside the mourning air
 12
 
 
should he stir
 13
should he shake
 14
with splendor
 15
each wet needle and
 16
seed of slumber
 17
from red bellied
 18
plume and feather
 19
shall become
 20
a blessing
 21
to the child
 22
growing impatient
 23
within your womb
 24
