Saturday in CinCity. After the Rains Edition.

Let The Day Go


by Grace Paley



who needs it

I had another day in mind

something like this one

sunny green the earth

just right having suffered

the assault of what is called

torrential rain the pepper

the basil sitting upright

in their little boxes waiting

I suppose for me also the

cosmos the zinnias nearly

blooming a year too late

forget it let the day go

the sweet green day let it

take care of itself

  2. You need some tomatoes and fresh mozzarella to go in that photo!

    We had torrential rains here this week. They were most welcome!
