Let your heart be a portal for the songs of the universe.

Llano Estacado Monsoon

     In defiance
    of tranquil sunset horizons
    thunderheads rumble
    no holds barred intentions
    then surrender
    shrouds of rain
    to a parched prairie.

    Dusty tablelands rejoice
    to the staccato
    of rain drops tap dancing
    upon terra cotta dirt roads.

    The gift from on high
    forms rivulets
    and writes
    ephemeral tales of joy
    with ripples
    and washes
    in multiple shades
    of red alluvium.
