July at the County Fair Grounds


Wall of lightening-slashed-rain in front of the setting golden sun,

shining yellow from behind the wet sheets

Other rain walls with continuous stabs of quiet electricity to the north

Three very large southern walls of rain, looming high

Between the walls, brilliantly shaped white clouds: rolling piles, lumps, and smooth spreads

Sun light bursts through in glorious evening tints and blue evening sky

Strong smell of rain against dry earth

I didn’t have my camera
