Dusk After a Rain

The sky is quite dark and fearful Only small bit of light Yellow beams come from the center But surrounded by night People walk on the sidewalks now With their umbrellas out For the rain has just come and gone Leaving water about Children stomp on the small puddles Laughing along with glee Adults try to avoid these spots They all go by wisely Light now diminishes onwards The air now seems so dark Street now has reflections within Cars now come to embark The town is alive with people All going here and there Feel of the night after a rain Brings life into the air
Russell Sivey Form Poulter’s Measure

    I've enjoyed this little trip, Russell! I remember those days of stomping in puddles as my Papa laughed while Mama got upset. LOL It never failed! I've never tried this form and will do soon. I love it. Thanks for this bit of nostalgia. : ) Always, Annalise

    Impressive sights and sounds in this poem, as well as excellent wording. I like the overall mood of this poem, which seems to be happy but threatening. Thank you so much for reading my work.
