Too Much Rain, Too Much Rain (6WS)

Universal Gesture

she stands at the wndow
cradling her coffee cup
in both hands

something in a minor key
playing on the radio
makes her close her eyes
go quiet inside

she takes a sip of coffee
laced with music
outwaits the song
one more time


  1. I hear that,, JT. It might be raining here in Wells, ME. Too foggy to tell, though.

  2. we seem to be on parallel tracks today
    we've been in a cloudbank for about four days, sat on the porch and literally watched it roll in over us. Im still waiting for it to roll on out.
    Keep your chins up, Mr. Lavalette, it can't last forever. (Killer song, by the way. Its in my head now for the rest of the day)

  3. Well, your poem makes the rain sound better anyway!

  4. Beautiful poem! We've been getting a lot of rain here, too.

  5. We have had a lot of rain as well however you make it sound pleasant.

  6. Lovely poem. Living in the great pacific NorthWET I can relate. The rain can be beautiful but only to for awhile...

  7. It has rained so much in ny too- awesome poem

  8. and thank you for reading (you have awesome taste, btw) and agree, a little rain is pretty, but after four days out of seven it loses its charm. unless you're a mallard.

  9. Mittens and kittens. They don't like rain either. :)

  10. We've had a lot of rain too, but I am so grateful I don't live out west where it hit 120 in Phoenix today. Loved your six-word=Saturday post.
