SAVED FOR SUNNY DAYS

 

20170212-a40a3011

 

So much rain the Sabbaths seem
like any other day, banked dreams
and basic routines squeezed

between storms, while the hard
work waits beyond in time:
opaque weeks ahead crossing

an angry creek when the melt
of soggy hills sets hard enough
to ride, to gather for brandings

saved for sunny days. Until then,
we believe what we see—watch
the morning sky and pray.

  1. Lovely photo, John. It wasn’t long ago that prayers would have been for more rain, while I imagine now they’re for an at least temporary cessation.

  2. John – Is that Big Baldy? In “olden times” I’ve ridden my buckskin mare right out on the top! It’s a great pic!
