Holes In My Umbrella (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #19)   Leave a comment

Getting soaked on my walk home
Because there are holes in my umbrella
Maybe it’s just a habit
For me to use it whenever it rains

But more likely, I find it comforting
Even as the years go by
It’s always here to keep me company
As I splash in the puddles

Pitter Patter   Leave a comment

Pitter patter
My thoughts scatter
Like rain drops in my mind
A constant torrent that won’t relent
At best my mind is like Seattle
At worst its a monsoon
It’s like I live in a steel roofed house
Eventually all the metallic static
Becomes synonymous with silence
Most of my ideas get lost in the flood waters
I’m only left with the biggest, the best, the worst
Imagine what I could do
If I wasn’t mostly water.
If I was filled with sunny days
And springtime weather.
