The Eucalyptus


the eucalyptus
captures the iridescence
in the morning fog                                              (Steph)

deep the scent that carries
a wanderer back to the west coast                          (WS)

Sweet Summer Rain


summer puddles

splashing in the memories

of childhood


first drops

hitting the hot sidewalk

smell of summer


sudden downpour

blurting out the story

all at once


summer rain – the day drizzles on and on



under the beach umbrella

heat storm
