Following Rain

Wet morning, wandering
ideas grey as clouds
or sidewalks washed with rain.

Walk, avoiding puddles.
Wisdom or confusion,
who’s to know? Worthier

questions have confounded
searchers for centuries.
I got the street’s memo:

Here, embrace the wetness,
always seek your own way,
& write everything down.

  8. I love the last line, too, but most of all I love the way you described our weather. Well, okay, we had snow mixed with the rain, which was pretty grim, and I should never have tried driving into the city, but it was only rain when I left. The snow came after I got onto the Trans Canada Highway.
    Thanks for the W prompt. I had fun with it.
    Luv, K

  10. Your use of W words is very subtle in this poem, yet each one is most significant to the meaning of the poem. I love the messages to be found in weather, especially in rain.
