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.
