Rain Tumbles

wet and cold

Rain tumbles,

all waterfalls

and slick streets.

The world may be wide and wild,

but right now it is wet,

drenched in an unpleasant thinness,

a coating on everything

that offers chill and slip.

The elements–

the wind whip,

the cold biting air,

the cloud drizzle–

are so uninviting.

So maybe today is a day to stay.

Maybe today is the day to stay.

  1. Thoroughly enjoyable read, Joy. Today will indeed (for me anyway) be a stay-day, after I return from my doctor visit, anyway. I’m hoping to post something then.
    I’m especially (and favorably) impressed by your inclusion of the link to an earlier, related poem. I think it amplifies this piece very nicely. Well done. Thanks.
