Hoping for a Ray of Sunshine

  The Goat  faimly is hoping for a light at the end of the Rainbow, both in the weather and the economy. Last nights Rainbow was a headshake as it is pouring ( Montana wise ) here in Bozenageles . Will watch the first Republican/teaparty debate tonight to see if they have a clue.

Need  the rain to break so little goat and I can get on the trail  and away from the  asphalt.

'Riprap' by
Lay down these words
Before your mind like rocks.
placed solid, by hands
In choice of place, set
Before the body of the mind
in space and time:
Solidity of bark, leaf or wall
riprap of things:
Cobble of milky way,
straying planets,
These poems, people,
lost ponies with
Dragging saddles --
and rocky sure-foot trails.
The worlds like an endless
Game of Go.
ants and pebbles
In the thin loam, each rock a word
a creek-washed stone
Granite: ingrained
with torment of fire and weight
Crystal and sediment linked hot
all change, in thoughts,
As well as things.
