the second day of rain

light-fingered drums
on a tin roof
we have missed
this music

singing dust to earth
to an under bare feet
we can sink toes in

I did not dance
to bring this
but I will
dance inside it

while squash blossoms
sigh throats open
tasting water

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    “I did not dance / to bring this / but I will / dance inside it” Such a great line, like music.

  4. The intense joy at the first rains – I recal how we used to dance, run and rump naked in the village in sheer joy at its libersating drops, its coolness and its liberating fragrance
