Balmy April Day

written by: Cindy Medina

Cloud monsters at morn,
gray on pearl sky, emulate
Organ Mountain peaks.

*

Pudgy cloud baby
sits atop billow, seeking
for Sun's attention.

*

Breezy humid morn -
its summer-like balmy gusts
stir leaves and wind chimes.

*

Two cloud monsters point
north, as if showing the way
to confused cloud mate.

*

Flock of feathery
cloud wisps, serene in otherwise
storm-potential sky.

*

Birds soar east; cloud wisps
gone east too. Mesmerized by
fabulous cloud beasts?

*

Cloud dog upon its
haunches, begging the Sun for
more strokes of its rays.

***

Mellow moon rises
in shimmering sky, where cloud
beasts earlier roamed.

*

Humidity's touch:
Morning's balmy caress now
night's cool silken kiss.

*

Almost forgotten -
shimmering sweet magic of
humidity's balm.

*

This cool humid night
has scent and feel of inky
dark Illinois nights.

*

This cool humid night:
Sweet silken air, stars a-glow
...what, no fireflies??

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
A moist weather front pushed into our desert region on April 12, bringing beautiful clouds and shimmering humidity with it. As I'd grown up in a humid region, this entire day was a welcomed reminder of yesteryear. I was instantly taken with it, and wrote many Haiku, twelve of which I'd like to share. The final Haiku expresses my disappointment that this desert clime has no fireflies (abundant in humid regions).
