A Pebble On The Dry Riverbed

hot and dry
still, I wait
under the sun
on the cracking floor

I hear whispers
through the leaves
and birds that fly high
they tell of your coming

Then here you are
trickling around me
rushing past me
covering, embracing

Slowly the heat
is dissolved
I am cool
I am wet
