Poetry Corner: Thunderheads

You are the sky not the clouds
the Buddhists say,
Even these clouds?
heavy and angry
weighed down, ready to break,
storming rage everywhere
But looking up later
they have moved,
showing cracks of blue,
clearing away
while we weren’t even looking

Poetry Corner: High desert wash

Summer –
day after day of heat, parched,
thick air hinting at coming storms
and then –
skies opening wide, just for a flash,
leaving only a trace of water on the thirsty earth
until next time

Sedona is always great for photography and poetry inspiration. I’ve got a few weeks worth from my most recent trip.
