FRIDAY PHOTO FINISH: the day rain came to the land of drought

morning shower draped the sun
water eased parched earth
wild mushrooms mushroomed
corvids sequestered in bush or tree

the day rain came to the land of drought
i missed the merry morning caw-fest
i thought to order coats for the crows ~
a sly enticement to temp them for play
safe from the wet in little yellow slickers
with little  hoods and craftily fitted galoshes
in black, tiny things with safety treads

picture it: a merry morning cacophony
from a murder of crows dressed in cadmium yellow

the sky over my scribble room

the sky over my scribble room
