I took this photo this past week on my day off. The day it rained and rained and rained. Yes I was out on my bike. And yes I got wet. But that’s okay, I dried off, too.

Earth Cycle

the earth breathes

she sweats

exudes her excess


joining clouds

forming clouds

until it’s too much

and then it falls

in mist


landing everywhere

on houses


my upturned face

on everything

it falls back

into her

becoming her


and again and again

mother earth
