Restoration – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Rain is grace ….” John Updike


Excoriated by summer's gaze,
desiring winter's cool soothe to
bathe the long ache of leathered,
split skin, parched and papering
to dust, needing the kindness of 
heavens dew washing over the 
passage of time, soft as lizards 
feet, tender child of the brook 
once more, playing water's
song of restoration.
