Drizzle

As the day evolves
from overcast
to sun to rain again,

the Artisan steps in
and brushes clouds
across blue skies—

wet-on-wet—
then takes a rag
and smears,

sprinkling sadness
into an otherwise
perfect moment.

We are anticipating some rain this weekend in the drought-stricken California desert, so actually it’s a reason for celebration if it makes it over the mountains.

  1. Love your poem Victoria. May your area be blessed with rain. It would seem we are in a drought too, but nothing like you folks. Actually, I needed the weather man to announce it for me to know.
