After too much rain
Hatched during your mean streak
mosquitos are mid-summer strong.
Because you stopped the endless downpour
and show a day of actual sky
I think a new poem.
Nude in the sun
I was writing about that sky
before you took it away.
I was drawing again.
My pen and paper
suffused with sunlight.
I drew up a storm.
