Tag Archives: summer rain

june 8

it’s a drizzly June day
we stop in to the sandwich shop
“What would you like today?”
“A reuben.”

we sit and listen to some ladies
at a table across the way
“How was your reuben?”
“Just right.”

a couple moves to the back after ordering;
another couple joins them
“What did you all order?”
“Reubens.”

comment from a listening lady:
“It’s a reuben kind of day!”


evening cocktail

Summer rain:

not the torrential
steamy pavement
gusty lusty
catch your breath
kind of wet

but a summer sip –
dog at the water bowl
duck strutting on the path
frogs sounding off once again in the dark
dribble in the drain
kind of rain
