gully washer

A Poem by James Paulin



pitter-pat to rat-tat-tat

puddles soon submerge to pools

sprinkles turn to dog and cat

streams obey now fluid rules

 

roiling skies boil, snarl and bark

bolts strobe importantly

smoke grey dims day to dark

ducks quack with impunity

 

sprig and bloom exalt in joy

subtly, the crest subsides

Jupiter returns to coy

as old Sol above abides

This holds some lovely imagery with rhyming used to good effect. It brought to mind a section of 'Nights in White Satin' by The Moody Blues, as I was reading it...such a haunting melody, your words and rhythm almost a perfect match.

Thank you for sharing,

love the poem- not crazy about the storms you so aptly describe- I suppose it's an acquired taste, he he.

There's nothing better than a stormy spring day; marks a beginning of change, of sorts. Wonderful flow and vocabulary!
