like any other October day in Woodland Hills
the sky broke misty full of the ocean rising
so far inland we must be linked in this dance
of life with waves and outer space leaves
don’t generally turn colors here but heat
doesn’t subside until much later, except
early morning on days like this precious
water fills the air thirsty land drinks
i try to figure out how to harbor these
drops to keep them grounded for when
the sun beats down scorching leaves
and landscape i learn the ways of trees
making love to air and water trickle
into a new season ready for growth and love
