August rains (revise, new title)...
poem by Peter Menkin

August rain, summer relief,
cools the later months.
Against the larger
sky below walks
the path alone common
stranger afoot, a lone

vision this existential
separation stays transitory;
sound the long highway
travelers north: growl to stretch

northward. The light rainwaters with relief
stark realities finite.
A mortal vision sighted
before the season changes.

This scene told anew, loneliness,
California climate norm.
Come the time of year
punctuated weather portents.
