hold my umbrella

The rain has come and pours down hard.
we’ve had the sun; basked in its warmth.
Time for something different.

We have choices…

Dance in the damp
Pounce on a puddle
Soaked to the skin

Ain’t nothin’ gon’ bring me down

Others
Go about their business

Defy the downpour
Masquerade in a Mackintosh
Galumph in galoshes

Ain’t nothin’ gon’ bring me down

Me

I sit – dry
Inert – at best
under my umbrella
watching
but also wishing
and waiting

For the sun’s return.

I’ve let every. single. drop.
of water bring me down

down

down

down.

At this moment,
that seems a bit of a waste.

So, I’m off to find a puddle.

Hold my umbrella.
