Wishing Skies -- Poetry 2011
Cloudless August skies -
finally a touch of perfect
Pacific Northwest summer days…
high temperatures slow inhabitants
used to unseasonably dreary summer.
Cool nights prevail due to proximity
to Puget Sound waters…
crickets finally emerge;
woefully deficient in numbers,
their scratching legs sing through warm nights.
Staring at wishing skies,
scanning for telltale streaks,
watching from darkened streets,
she had waited a whole year
to wish on summer’s falling stars.
