Day 8: Pobject's Shade

Underneath the canopy the rainwater pools
in bowls with tree-root ribs.
The water draws the mayflies and mosquitoes
in a gloamy mist of
diaphanous wings. We will not linger here,
though the sun will bake our necks
and burn our breath. Was it only weeks ago we wished
for summer to arrive?
