Boots

Boots of all shapes and sized

sit on the shelf

high boots,

pointed boots

kinky boots

flat slipons

laced boots

walking boots

each one has a job

today I realized one important thing

there was one pair missing

the most important of all

the ones that keep my feet dry

as I stumble through woods

as I squelch through mud

as I kick autumn leaves

as I walk through the stream

Wellie boots are missing

so what will I choose

green ones, blue ones

flowers or spots

in all honesty I really don’t mind

as long as they keep my feet dry.

A little spot of rain

Slate clouds fill the sky

Drops of rain fall steadily

Wind whips around the trees

thunder rumbles islowly

 

The storm arrives with vengence

Rain pours from the sky heavily

It pushes its way through the sealed window

The patio becomes a pond as the water rises

 

Lightening carves its way through the slate

The water collects with nowhere to go

A branch snaps as the wind takes hold

A clap of thunder startles me

 

Slate clouds turn to pale grety

Wind blows softly

Rain drops become little spots

The water is dying away.
