Rain….My Mental Health Gauge

I hate rain!
Muddy boots
Smelly doggie
Kids stuck inside
Sky is all cloudy
Grey and depressing
Affecting my mood
Rain is the tears of my friends,
gone too soon
It’s confining
And cold
And it sneaks in the house
Through crevices and cracks
Like a fat creepy mouse
Moisture causing
doors to squeak
Umbrellas, wind and
angels weep
Birds are hiding
In their nests
Not a peep!!

I love rain
No errands to run
Just stay in the house
So cozy and warm
Flowers are drinking
Kids puddle hop
Lay on the couch
Drip, drip, drip, drip, drop
Excuse to be lazy
How can I clean
When water is coming
Down my window pane
Sleep in abundance
Needed and taken
Dreams of a sunrise
In which I will awaken
The birdies will be
Out in force
Worm bazaar
The rain has loosened up
Their underground squall
Pitter, patting
Natural rhythm
To put words to
Song of the sunrise
My tip, tip, tap musical

No matter
If you
Love the rain or do not
I guess it’s all up to
Half full
However it comes
At the right time or not
The rain is my gauge
Of my mental health spot
Who needs all the doctors
Who needs all the pills
Just give me a rainstorm
And I’ll know
This I will


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
