Dollar Drizzle

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #218 – “Save It For A Rainy Day”

“Here we are in the early stages of October. We anticipate the fast-approaching holidays and the end of another year of life. And in the process, we invariably have to deal with the weather inherent with the autumnal times at hand. Right now, rain is the order of the day. Nuisance and heavier downpours fluctuate and we wait for it to end. It reminds me of the phrase, “save it for a rainy day.”

So, we’re saving something. But what and FOR what? We could be seeding a nest egg to buy something. We could be building good grace to save our souls. Scraps of fabric for a patchwork something or other? Tell us what it is and how you plan on disposing of it.”

Dollars I drizzle
into a yellowing
envelope, patterned
with Christmas
decorations around
the corners, are looked
at on the odd rainy
day–fish-wishing,
dream-scheming–
believing that I will
hit on a perfect
“something” on which
to spend the total.
As of now, how I will
spend it remains
a mystery.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
