oppressive, still air ~ tanka

oppressive, still air
far distant rolling thunder
as birds fall silent
rain that does not want to fall
no relief from summer heat

This tanka may reflect conditions of late August, but it’s a response to
Tanka Splendor #25 Summer Heat, a prompt from mid-July that I missed while traveling.
