Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the Rain
Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.
I’m sitting at my dining table,
And I think I forgot to close the window
Because the curtains are flying
And there is water
Monsoon wind swirls and gusts are life-giving,
Invigorating, in the face of summer heat.
I’m curled up with Harry Potter again –
I’m sorry if it looks like I’m ignoring you
But I’m not really here anymore;
I really didn’t hear you.
My stomach interrupts me though,
So I blast my DVD player all the way
With a mix CD from two years ago
Signed by a friend,
And sing like no one ever has before
Because no one ever has.
And I get my poncho, chocolate,
Sunflower seeds and soup
Because tea is hard to get just right
And sweaters and coffee are too cliché.
