Awaiting The Storm

I skulk away from the sky,
hide under a rock shelter,
look out over the stagnant pools,
wait for the rain to come.

And, you know,
I never thought
it would happen like this:
those old sylvan warriors
are waiting for me,
round the corner.

They have no weapons,
only red brittle faces
with half-smiles
and words
which I barely understand.
