Drip Drip Drip. (365 Words Challenge)



If only it would do something

other than this rain...


Perhaps.....a fluttery burst

of lacy snowflakes

falling in


spirals ,floating

dreamily in

slow motion

to a white diamond earth, 

or the pinging of hail 

upon a

red wood deck

surrounded by

oak and pines.


Or even if it were

a cauldron of fog

rising up from

the valley floor

like some eerie

witches brew

on Halloween.


Anything but this

pounding ,drumming

incessant thrumming

drip, drip drone...

a torrential downpour

from dark angry clouds

with a cold embrace


my lovely

view of the sea


This dreary gray rain

Just keeps on

reminding me

far,too much

of you and I.

cold embrace ,  gray are the words
