earth note 382

a cloud covered sun
in its own magic
is often overlooked

at the roadside pull-off
last night near dusk
we musta looked like
local experts in our
beach chairs
at least one tourist
wanted our advice
on a good viewing spot
we didn't have any authoritative answers
so they drove off frantically
missing the cormorant's sunset catch

this morning
for a moment
sun & rain converged
dwelling together
letting the ibis
pick their turf
between the puddles
     'til the turkey buzzards
     showed up

the sun will eventually
win the day
     try again tonight
