Winnie the Pooh


Inch-and-a-half of rain

slish-slosh

slippery yellow boots.


Umbrella,

hidden in a closet

over colder months

black and drab

overhead.


Rain makes music

on the pavement

the empty streets.



the umbrella is thrown aside,

the boots slipped off


and feet pound the puddles

as she dances in the rain.


Her brown hair is soon black

with water from the heavens

which are gray overhead.



Her eyes are closed

her face tilted up,


rain caressing her face.


Her mouth is slightly open,

a small pink o

and she spins,

arms outstretched

not worrying about anyone

or anything.


She dances in the


rain.
