June 6th – Rain

As you may have noticed, today’s poem is inspired by rain. I woke up this morning to the sound of it, and by the looks of the forecast I need to get used to it. And not just a sprinkle–non-stop, downpour rain. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate the rain, immensely, but I’m not against its inspirational qualities!


It’s one of those days

When you wake up in the morning

And it’s so cloudy

It’s still dark out

And you can’t get yourself out of bed

And the rain isn’t sprinkling

But pounding on the ground like a migraine

Making your front lawn a giant puddle

And you manage to move

But have nothing to do

Except snap at those closest to you

So you do

Until you fill up with enough rage

That you throw on your raincoat

And head outside before you burst

But the rain is so fierce

That you still find yourself

Soaked to the skin

And you start to cry in frustration

Until your fed up mind says

To hell with this

And you throw off your coat

To feel the clouds’ tears on your skin

And dance

  1. glad that you turn your rage into the power of dance and fun in the end…
    good things come out of bad things at times,
    rain clear the air…

    Take care.
