Winter Rain

Winter Rain

Time is long;
wants are too;
needs don’t
even figure.

One question mark
all this busted beauty.

Flash a light
on every quandary;
look deeply at each
nickel-colored  sky.

Unfurl one perfect
send it skyward;
ask for everything.

Thunder out
the blackness
of tree-bark
drenched in rain.
