cloudy morning (20161024)

morning rain washes
everything clean
sidewalks, streets
air heaves with petrichor
and the scent of eucalyptus
thin crescent moon wanes overhead
masquerading as a wisp of cloud

today, two cars make u turns
in the middle of the street
what is not forbidden
is implicitly allowed

the sun, that smug bastard
burns through clouds
ruining this autumnal dream

but he draws my eye
like a pointed finger

two silhouettes
against a brighter bank
two souls
rising up on shafts of light

or a pair of angels
falling in slow

  1. “the sun, that smug bastard” 😂 great stuff, Crow. Your images are wonderful. I have to read it again. (Are you in Australia?)

    1. Thank you.

      No, usually sunny California. I’m glad for the rain, but I think it’s only happening since I have construction going on.
