chanting arid windsong

drought fred williams

 

straw dry …drought crack

riverbed flakes skin…darkens

rain forced to fresh mud wash

 

skyed sparks stream static trace

north poled…arched by fingertips

and… moss gleams phosphorescent

 

geometric moonbeams drift listless

up and down and left and right,

scrape pockets in the night

 

islands slip their moorings…form

new continents of Latin mass for

chanting arid windsong
