The Drabness Of A Rainy Friday

Drabby Friday is quickly approaching, steady raindrops are unwelcoming; more cheerless than a fluttering robin finding refuge in the cathedral's spires that cannot reach the swollen clouds, I trod the wet cobbled streets of London! The heavy tread of my booths is not heard as they hit paddles, they squish if they had holes; not distant from me, a birch tree has fallen showing its dirty roots... in its branches buzzed the Honeybee! A harmonious sky incites joy, ever notice the boredom of a boy? I feel the same sadness he feels... when he won't smile at ladies resembling models on high heels, and the drabness of a rainy Friday stays... until rain tampers off and shows sunrays!

Goodmorning, Anne-Lise. Thank you for your kind comment. I am glad that you like my winning poem. I have bee away from Poetry Soup. I return from time to time. I dedicate most of my time composing music to songs. Songwriting is more lucrative than poetry writing, but without promotion and investment, nothing will ever happen. I keep my fingers crossed hoping that a publisher will be interested in them. I was excited to hear from you. I have heard that all over Europe there's a deep freeze and more snow is coming. Stay warm and keep on writing your lovely poems. Hugs, Andrew.
