Trees We Can See From Our House

and the trees
     are just for us
they dress up now
     in shades of green
are decorated
with doves
some bare branches
     peek
but the rest
     are rich
decorating our view
 

Heat Wave

white was at the
     top of the sky
     and toward
          earth
the color of melon

still hot air
     almost august
     dirt
and feelings hot
to go with the
      heat wave
      that is coming
can we calm it down
before then
 

Summer Rain

what if  she thought
what if

and it rained
a storm
deluge
upon
caked earth

yes
and it would not be absorbed
hard
as cooked clay
holding the water
as much as it could
riding on the top
