When Nature Glories in Vain

Day after all that rain—a pain
to scrape up these plastered leaves
and this washing clean an illusion.
We are still sugar-coated, sodden
sleepwalking into later and later
dawnings, yawning, undazzled.

Day 1 attempt for the Writer’s Digest November PAD Chapbook Challenge.
