My Writing

Rainy Day

 Here we go! Another poem! Because the rainy Fall days are returning to Washington state, I figured I’d share one of my earlier poems inspired by wet days and mud puddles. Enjoy!

 ***

Rainy Day

 

plink,

         plunk

droplets of drizzle dazzle the day

stomp,

squeak

red rainboots

slip and slide

through the dusty doorway

leak,

         leap

kitty cat catches

a wayward wet drop

hiss,

hop

fuzzy feline frets

and he won’t stop

laugh,

splat

into a bed of leaks

mud,

thud

I clean off my filthy feet

calm,

sigh

day disappears,

leaving quiet, cool night.

 

Things are more interesting when less bright.
