THE LIST

After the lightning

igniting fires, after the storm,

a new day dawns

 

with hope

and a hint of change

from the blistering summer heat

 

with the equinox knocking

at the door, I think

of all the jobs earmarked

 

for years—our growing list

of work we’ve saved

for rainy days.

 

The prognosticators

are unusually quiet,

don’t dare say

 

when to expect a rain.

I keep adding to a list

that will outlive me.

  2. And, kids build their own lists in the same fashion. Rightly so.
