burst from the sky in July
drip drop raining
I missed last week because I was on vacation but the first line has been sticking with me every since. The rain doesn't really show up in this picture very well but I was eating breakfast on the deck pondering some words shared with me on my walk that morning. I passed two older gentlemen on my morning walk. We were walking in a morning drizzle, a bit of a drip drop format. He smiled at me and said, "it's just liquid sunshine." It totally changed my mindset and I began thinking about all the good that comes from a good rainfall. Earlier this summer I was sticking tightly to a 5-7-5 syllable format. Thanks to you, poetry friends I've branched out a bit to 4-7-4 pattern. I do like the first and third line to have the same syllables. It may not matter but it feels right to me.
Thank you Donna at Mainly Write for hosting Poetry Friday this week.
