"After The Rain"

Stardust on heel.

Trail of fallen petals at Azalea Gate.

Faded river irises on the way to Sun-Watching Observatory.

Blue sky, then gray.

Red-shouldered hawk turning holy arcs.

Wandering the lanes, umbrella in hand.

Trees blossoming.

More stars.

The whole day

from dawn 'til dusk

a river of perfume.
