Rainy Day

Rainy Day

Drip, drip, drip
Droplets tumble gently onto rooftops,
Wormy water around bright yellow boots,
Giant, red golf umbrella
Shields against the inevitable
Perfectly scattered puddles.

Cold air
The leaves sway in the wind
With each breeze that passes,
The world twists and turns,
Threatens
The haze of change.

Drip, drip, drip
Clouds scamper into zone coverage
The offense anticipates an opening in the trenches
Snap!
Hit it and go!

Cold air
Chills run across my skin
The sound of splashing engulfs my senses
Thunder rolling aggressively in the distance
Swirling purple clouds overwhelm the sky
Darkness creeps in bearing the weight of a storm.

Drip, drip, drip
The downpour
Soaks,
Humidity fills the air,
Clouds seem to slowly part.
The rushing rain turns into a light drizzle,
A brighter day is to be seen beyond the horizon.
The sun peeks through
And the world resumes.
