The deluge of rain today
has given me time for a deluge
Leaky spouts in the basement
have resulted in spouts of future
projects bubbling up in my brain.
Keeping the heat going, somewhere
in the world there is warmth and light.
Pink blooms, pink tea,
tropical rooibos sweetness.
Yellow windows full of sun.
Dreaming of hibiscus, linden
and larkspur. All wrapped up in
a recycled envelope just for me.
