Good day my melodious yaks, before the Bluejays get under way I have a few minutes to share my newest creation. After raining here for the past three days I finally found the inspiration to craft something along those lines. I don’t typically write anything super long when in the poetry genre but this one stretches just a bit. Written immediately upon returning from outside moments ago. I’m proud to share, “serenity”.
While walking the dog in the rain
On fascinating sights we came
The pinprick drops into the lake
‘Til turgid waters overtake
Rivulets stream down off the leaves
Niagara Falls from out the eaves
Trees still mostly naked provide
Little shelter with which to hide
Huge puddles barricade our way
She leaps better than I these days
Watching clouds from down below
Their fluffy visions proudly show
The smell of rain truly profound
Conflating wet with windy and ground
Fence posts gathering moisture much
Cheap umbrella folds in the clutch
Eventually it comes to pass
You lose concern for your drenched ass
Letting go in downpour’s vital
To achieve this poem’s title.
I’m actually really pleased with that piece snarky ending be damned. I blame all of you. Everyone being so positive and supportive is making it significantly more difficult to be a curmudgeonly perfectionist. Before anyone asks the “s” in serenity is intentionally not capitalized. I am not qualified to hand out Serenity. So I decided to offer only serenity instead. A grand day to you all. Go splash around a bit!
A broken mind held together by cellophane and some tack.
