Phil Huffy


Dawn Time

Though proof has not yet been obtained,
I think last night it may have rained.

I had a dream (or maybe not)
of thunder near my camping spot

and now a humid curtain lies
across the landscape, lake and skies.

I’ll leave at rest my little pup,
then poke around and coffee up

and on this rather gloomy day
await the sunrise anyway.

Phil Huffy had a long career doing something else. Turning to poetry,
he found his voice and got to writing at his kitchen table. His work
has appeared in dozens of literary journals, both in print and online.
