This Rainy Day


A frigid, drizzling rain is falling from a ghostly sky

Countless water droplets splashing upon every square inch of available surface

Gliding gently down the sloped and tattered rooftop

Pooling for a moment on the dark wooden deck only to dribble through the cracks

Gathering together to drip and drip again from the patio light strings

Droplets hang in suspension, like tiny light bulbs, from the berries that have already dried on wintered crepe myrtles

A stark stillness foreshadows the coming storm

As I sit, viewing it all,  from my picture window

Wet, cold, dim and gray

So it is on this rainy day
