today the air hangs
dense as an asthmatic lung
waiting for cool breath
out from the breaking
clouds, rain-poured coolness; wet leaves
as green as eden
I really rather wanted to continue the asthmatic metaphor into the second haiku, but could not manage it, and so changed it up, though I imagine Eden had no place for asthmatic lungs, as mine were a bit today. These days I am having a hard time imagining the many with worse asthma than mine and no insurance and/or no air conditioning. Thankful, and for the rain as well.
Oh, and PS, the photos will return one day…
