In the Rain

Balancing your pocketbook,
Umbrella and a bag
While the wet relentless rain
Accosts you is a drag.

Whipping wind is adding fuel
To metaphoric fire.
Wish that where you’re going
There would be a waiting dryer.

Nothing you can do when days
Are windy, wild and wet
Except to know that once you’re soaked,
No wetter can you get!

    On rainy days, we all can't be like Gene Kelly. When there is rain, we have to accept it and adapt to it.

    It's like riding a dirt bike. Once you fall in a mud puddle, you can really start to have fun. Keep dancin' in the rain. :)
