June 4th

Getting in
my 10,000 steps
Mother Earth’s breath
is strong.

Humid, earthy smells
rise towards the heavens
asking
for rain
to come.

Even though
there are sunny skies,
a dark cloud appears ahead.

Soon a drop
of answered prayers
lands
upon my skin.

I look above
and see the sign
of God’s
promised covenant

I will always
hear you.
