Love Poem - Poem by Leslie Marmon Silko
Rain smell comes with the wind
out of the southwest.
Smell of sand dunes
tall grass glistening
in the rain.
Warm raindrops that fall easy
The summer is born.
Smell of her breathing new life
small gray toads on
whispering to dark wide leaves
white moon blossoms dripping
tracks in the
I am full of hunger
deep and longing to touch
wet tall grass, green and strong beneath.
This woman loved a man
and she breathed to him
her damp earth song.
I was haunted by this story
I remember it in cottonwood leaves
their fragrance in
I remember it in the wide blue sky
when the rain smell comes with the wind.
