On Love and Storms


We can’t always choose
spring rains quench, revive or drown,
but drought is lifeless.
Take your chances with the sky -
leave your umbrella behind.


This is for Day#7 of PAD and linked to the open write in the Imaginary Garden.

  7. I am reminded of what is going on with California with drought when I read this. We never know really, do we?

  8. Nice.
    I hate to carry an umbrella, for one thing, they add extra weight to one's load.

  10. I prefer choice to chance, but I am a true control freak. This poem tempts me to dare the skies!

  11. April showers bring may flowers
    So they say
    Who are they to say that anyway
    I say
    I say
    They bring a new scent
