I saw the sun, though it didn't shine 
Gave up no shadows, gave out no way to know the time 
No wind to blow the silver leaves 

The drone of clever talk just stopped 
The air hangs out, hesitates to carry a thought 
Away from me 

And the sky colored heavy gray 
August Day 

Stir the dust and carve a rhyme 
Barefoot blues watch and wait till supper time 
Will a smile break through 

Distant thunder and the slow dance 
Static lightning sky daring me to take a chance 
And say,
