The Rain Will Come

Perhaps it's the war
     with the death of a son
     with the sacrifice of a father

Perhaps it's the year of query
     of beautiful story without a reader
     of skillfully written, but --     

Perhaps it's months of illness
     and having little to control
     and having less to try

This creative desert only
     deepens my thirst
     drives my next step
