Rain Dance

We smile, it's raining Jovial in dancing joy Soaked to the skin Warm hearth welcomes us Naked to bare, towelling Goosebumps diminish Pillows, rugs, two lie Face to face, lips now caress We, attraction flows Candles flickering Undulating shadows grace Unification .

Sleep Well

water drip- dripping soothing the beast robbing sleep floating with the rain

it’s raining non stop
humidity out-of-sight
those maddening raindrops!

not a real downpour
but just this steady drizzle
only good for the crops

sticky is the word
such that when i get up
the chair comes with me

it’s a frog’s delight…
noah’s sensing the great flood…
the whole world at sea..

owl and pussy cat
in their slimy pea green boat
drifting endlessly!

these depressing thoughts –
the sun will never come out –
have me feeling yuck!

then i watch the news
“twister levels many blocks”
and i’m thunderstruck!

umbrella poised and ready

Disappointing Setback

Disappointing Setback Six long months they worked sixteen bright and eager minds planned our art event. Artists looked ahead, painting, framing their great works for our yearly show. Then the day arrived; charcoal, moisture-laden clouds shed their dreaded tears. Bullhorn blared the words heard with sad and heavy hearts... "cancel the art show." Artists packed their gems— lonely display fences stood naked in the fog. Work of six months straight quashed by nature's fickle whim to spoil our event. Sandra M.
