sky
the same color
as runway
why don’t I ever dream
about flying

rain, rain (rain, rain)

spring rain backwards until the beginning

.

summer rain
some of you in
some of me

.

autumn rain preparing the palimpsest

.

forgot water could be so heavy winter rain

In the Hallows

a junicho renku by Melissa Allen and Aubrie Cox

.
.
flickering porch light
I offer candy
to the ghost

a bottle of pumpkin ale
from the cellar

home sick from school
he reads a book
about buried treasure

popsicle stick pirate ship beached
in the laundry basket

the glint of the moon
off her sharpened
skate blades

solo dance down
the dark sidewalk

carvings in the pine
fill with sap
that will harden

my dog and his
romping through the sprouting lettuce

weeds creep
between cracks
in the concrete

we try speaking French
to the tourists at Versailles

an arguing couple
breaks bread
at a riverside cafe

at day’s end
a frog leaps from lily to lily
