• Jean Linville

dryness of the moon

June 21 - June 26 Week 13/72

sage, dill and deep rooted milkweeds

revel while the lindens, maples

and nearby oaks stand sullen

having quieted their greens

weeks and weeks of no rain

feet coated in a fine dust of dry earth

grass faded to beige softly breaking

with each step as we search the sky

hanging a wish for water

on the tip of the crescent moon
