Talking Weather

Written for:  Poetic Asides PAD November 2020 Challenge - Day 14

"For today’s prompt, write a memory poem. Dive into your own personal memories. Or use them as a springboard into an imagined memory. Or combine this memory prompt with the persona prompt from a few weeks ago."


It was a day of rainy weather
or so we thought, 'til sun shone through.
I had just folded by umbrella
when suddenly, the sky broke blue.

Do not look at forecast,
look out your window.
Wrong so often–
those weather people.

I tried to estimate percentage–
the ratio of rain to sun,
and have concluded to my chagrin
it was a day of rainy weather.

(mixture of persona poem and memory)

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.
