Puddles


Rainy days are not uncommon here in the UK.

Ah, but there is inspiration (maybe even a poem) to be found even on rainy days. I was once quoted as saying there is a poem in everything around us whereupon I was challenged to write one about ...puddles!

PUDDLES

Reflections of an angry sky

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops...

Sulky mouths, creased brows

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops...

Fearful fingers clutching collars

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops...

Umbrellas, scoring points

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops...

Bowed heads like sad clouds

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops...

Better times around the next corner

skimming the surface like ripples
from raindrops
