O is for… Ombrology
~ by Laurel Regan

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - O

a memory

bus stop
waiting
early-alarm weariness
wee-hour morning sky
still dark
streetlight reflections flickering in
puddles
textured with wind-driven ripples

and

it

is

pouring

rain coat, drenched
waterproof shoes, leaking
raised umbrella, useless

drip

drip

drip

crowded bus, windows steamed
wet bodies packed together
soaked, unsmiling
braced for another long work day
marked by
sopping hair
clammy feet
sodden spirit

finally dry?
must be time to go
back in the rain
back on the bus
back to your home

until tomorrow
then

lather

rinse

repeat…
