Rainy Day

_____________________________________

Heavy chunky rainclouds rumble

For my bumbershoot I bumble

And raincoat

*

Lightning makes me feel humble

Into my rainboots I stumble

In rainfall

*

This weather makes others grumble

Into the puddles I’ll tumble

In rainstorms

*

During my commute I mumble

Liquid windshield world a jumble

The rainscape

*

Do not let the camera tumble

To catch the fleeting I fumble

A rainbow

Puddle Jumper

_____________________________________

Pulling these on for the most soggy of days

Dry socks, warm feet

Jumping into the center of puddles

Up down, repeat

Joy and laughter from a grown up person

Rain drop athlete

I will never begrudge a rainy day

As long as I can get outside and play.
