Chinook Rain


The hissss of light rain on river,

A day of this,

After the wind,

Settles summer’s score.

Now salmon stir

In the new, sweet water.

Act 1: Summer’s score,

Patiently settled by the wind.

Act 2: Soft skies,

And the long hiss of light rain,

On a late afternoon river.

Act 3: In the new, sweet water,

Salmon stir.
