It’s a rainy day here in Victoria, BC. Care to join me at the keyboard and read a poem?
Here is my latest poetic creation. Have a wonderful day and stay dry!
You. Yes. You.
You stand in front of me in a
Soaked red t-shirt and a grin full of
Wonder. Why do you not wear a coat?
The rain falls with abandonment.
Why do you not care that you are wet?
Me? Who? Me?
I care, I wonder, I grin.
My coat is at home, along with my
Fears built over years.
Why do you insist on wearing a coat?
The rain falls with excitement.
Why do you deny your skin of the
Invigorating touches of raindrops?
High above, the dark sky watches the scene.
A woman flails her arms excitedly as
She speaks with a man in a red t-shirt.
After a few minutes, the woman closes her mouth.
She slowly takes off her coat and
The sky shakes itself in delight.
The raindrops increase in number as the
Woman jumps in a puddle, to
Join the man in the red t-shirt.
