MONDAY: Rain Puddles

BY KATHERINE ADLAM

Copyright is held by the author.

Rain drops spear into the puddle
Sending eddies rippling to its muddy shore.
My rain boots on the verge
Form glistening black monoliths.
I raise one boot high
And force it down into the center of the puddle.
Water rushes high soaking my jeans.
I lift my face skywards.
Rain tears run down my face.
My palms are turned upwards
In silent supplication.

    I love the feeling this poetry evokes; not all poetry does that for me; and I look forward to seeing some of this writer’s children’s stories published for the enjoyment of readers of all ages!
