Choice - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Three days of dark, low clouds
Almost constant rain and strong winds
Involuntarily sequestered
I noticed the difference
Confinement is habitually my choosing
Free from distractions
Exempt from superficiality
I pulled on my navy blue hood
Cinched the drawstring, framing my face
And let the wind driven rain flog me

    Defiance, I like and understand what you mean when you write that confinement is habitually my choosing and yet to have a relentless rain seem to dictate you rebel and meet a driving rain when others run for cover. (Report) Reply

    Part defiance, part I just like being out in the rain.: -)

    I like to infuse the thought I am writing about with a snapshot of the moment (Putting on my hoodie)
    Thanks, Anita

    Sometimes not choosing anything is a choice too... Life is about choices and their subsequent ramification, isn't it? Even.The.Simplesr.Choices.... A very well crafted poem Kelly.. Thanks for sharing.. (Report) Reply

    Confinement is habitually my choosing
    Sometimes rainy days of life prolong so much that one is constrained to confine in a lonely place where there is none else and the ego starts talking the super ego, and finally the rainy days are passed. One looks out and sees a sunny day is smiling.

    A very wise perception, Akhtar. Thank you.
