previously flat-roofed porch

is growing cisterns
on the edges
some looking
like long troughs
an inch of water
rests short
of the downspouts
telling us
we should
be collecting and
to each according to needs
hoping for three foot sunflowers
before the frost
white pines pushing up
winter wind barriers

hard rain & good intentions
won’t get it done
