blowing in

dim morning light
rain falling
somewhere
between misty
and drizzle
temperature
dropping like a rock from
the tip-top crags of Mt. Penzzozie

it’s a day for walking the river,
watching the turtles
poke their heads from the wet below
to the wet above
ducks fluffing feathers
little orange feet
churning

tourists
along the Riverwalk
having their chorizo con papas y huevos taco
under flapping umbrellas at Casa Rio,
until, the rain as excuse,
the flee off to Stoner's
for early morning cervazas

it’s gonna be a great day

Reads like a weekend outing, Allen

first stanza my favorite -- but the whole poem paints the picture of an outing I want to take

temperature
dropping like a rock from
the tip-top crags of Mt. Penzzozie


Ha!

and this:
watching the turtles
poke their heads from the wet below
to the wet above


reminds me of Wayne's poem about being observant -- as well as reminding me that Wayne had a turtle once...
