After too much rain

After too much rain

 

Hatched during your mean streak

mosquitos are mid-summer strong.

 

Because you stopped the endless downpour

and show a day of actual sky

I think a new poem.

 

Nude in the sun

I was writing about that sky

before you took it away.

 

I was drawing again.

My pen and paper

suffused with sunlight.

I drew up a storm.
