Orange Rain

    Fallen leaves, rotten fruit, earthworms, chicken feces, and charcoal residue mix with orange-red earth, the mud from our backyard is full of many little things. I remember huddling under patterned cloths, waiting for sweet petrichor , the smell after earth and sky have made peace, a smell that I still can’t really describe….

Rain

Star Sapphires Grazing the sacred Cutting open the dead Healing  long formed decay Softening and molding the hardened earth Summoning sweet petrichor Drifting upwards Rain.
