But for now we got no rain

life is what u make it
it’s that simple and plain
sometimes u get sunshine
but for now we got no rain;

so thats how it all started,
as simple as that,
its been a while,
a long while indeed;

one hell of a hot summer,
sweating and perspiring
like never before,
sleepless nights and broken hearts;

waiting for the clouds
to open up,
a game of wait and watch
like good old times has begun;

predictions and assumptions are plenty,
reality only known to the beholder,
everyone has an opinion
and everyone has an idea;

with the summer’s out of the way
and the rain clouds still not in sight,
keeping a constant vigil on the local weather forecast,
watching in silence, i am eagerly waiting to jump into the puddle
and splash my worries away;

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
