I Watch as a Light Mist Covers the Tree Tops

Updated on August 2, 2018

One Wet And Dreary Day

Where all the beauty in life fades away

It is seen in the dull light

Where children would normally play

Rolling inside the big plastic ball

Bouncing high on a trampoline

Close together as they told secrets to one another

Laughing so loud anyone could easily hear

The fun and joy in each word

All we have is the trees leaves glistening

The green weeds and grass look like tiny little reflectors

Later rain comes down hard

Making small pockets of puddles along the drive way

Pounding hard against the silvery car

As each solar light tries to light

Only working for a short time

Until they go dark

The water races across the deck

Then instantly disappears through the cracks

Life is forever changing

What was once a sunny and warm

Now is chilly and raw

The dampness seeps into everything and everyone

We wait for tomorrow

Another day of rain may follow

Then again the bright sun could surprise us

Lighting up the bluish sky

With this incredible fierce sunshine

The children will run as fast as they can

As the sweat pours down across their forehead

In the open spaces

Finding endless energy to play

As we once also did

Where nothing else seemed to matter

Only what we were doing in the moment

Was all there was and we were so happy

        Gypsy Rose Lee I enjoy the weather when it is cool and breezy. The hot sun gets to be a little too much for me. I love the rain and a touch of snow. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Have one beautiful day.

        Wonderful poetry. Days seem to change the mood depending on the weather. When it is hazy out and heading for rain I love to go out because the bits of raindrops that fall refresh but when the clouds mingle with sun and the humidity climbs it is best to stay indoors.
