Mirage

City sullied
thirsty ochre hills
dusty dead sward
closing summer
ashen skies
waves shimmer
blacktop mirages
Coming home
hot and tired

You
pour cool wine
darken the room
light candles
melt me

Night
balmy
moon blue
jungle beat
pulsing
primordial
visceral
ritualistic
dance
calling
for
rain

Desert to a reservoir
greening once again
turning towards tenderness

Water
falling
piano notes
descending
scales
