Waiting


Waiting
for the rain to retreat
there is no place 
to take shelter

the dinghy and i

left and forgotten

toss and tug 
at the line
that holds us

hoping to escape
and drift to seas
of sunshine

~
(Will. it. ever. stop. raining.)

Brings back memories of a time I was stuck on a lake in Canada under a terrible storm. So bad even the loon tucked against the side of our boat.

Sylvia K said...

Great shot and the perfect words, Reena, as always! We're getting some rain, too, but not as heavy or as much as a couple of weeks ago! Hope you "dry out" soon!

Lois Evensen said...

Perfect verse with the image.

Lots of rain expected here today, too.

Ooo, neat image which hardly appears to be a photograph. Having nice warm sunny weather here again in northern California but you probably didn't want to read that.

Your poem is perfect for your image, well done! I hope the rain stops for you to go out and play!

Barb Brookbank said...

This is simply beautiful, both the photo, and the poem.

The rain brings a certain beauty of its own, but it is nice when it stops :-)

Brian Miller said...

Hi Renna...It doesn't look good does it, just when I think it is going to stop for awhile it starts again!!
So sorry that your dinghy is just sitting there waiting for the sun to shine, but it is a interesting photo!!
Nice poem too ..to bad it isn't about sunny days on the bay!!

the sunshine is the brightest and warmest after a good rain.

beth said...

Evelyn S. said...

But you make the wait so attractive, Reena!

Pat Tillett said...

Great words and photo! If you could send some of that rain out this way, it would be greatly appreciated.

Daryl said...

Someone is looking for rain, someone for sunshine.

Such a difficult situation.

bon bon said...

makes for a photo just as gorgeous as a though.

Mandy Southgate said...

What beautiful words. I'm guessing you're having a rainy summer like we are?

Barb said...

Poem and photo give me a rainy-day feeling. Send some my way!

Michael Manning said...

So nicely written. My Mom in the Mid-West speaks of rainfall in every conversation by phone. Amazing how many months this pattern has continued!

Catherine said...

I'm sorry about all your rain!!
It is raining today with predictions for the same all weekend.
It's OK here as we haven't had much but I know it gets tiring after awhile doesn't it?
Sending you sunny thoughts!
xo Catherine

Michaele said...

I swear it is raining everywhere. And especially on weekends!

Suldog said...

Rain, rain, go away
And stay where you go, damn it!

Far too much rain and far too little sun so far this year. I hope you get some happy sunny days soon!

ladyfi said...

That's a lovely shot. Hope the sun has come out!

Linda R said...

That rain looks beautiful to me. Its been so long since I have seen rain I almost forgot what it looks like. :)

I love your poem. You are one talented writer my friend.

Hugs~

GailO said...

I think I heard that this has been the 5th wettest June in RI on record and the month is only half finished! It is certainly getting tiresome:(

Love your poem!

Jennifer Richardson said...

lots of rain here, too;
certainly makes for some lushness.
greener than green.
mold too but i won't talk about that.
happy oars,
Jennifer

Pat Tillett said...

Both the words and the photo are beautiful!

Michael Manning said...

It's been raining in my hometown for the past 7 months! Amazing, considering that I currently live in Phoenix! :)

Chris Rohrer said...

We've had a nice summer of rain so far. I hope it keeps up.....and that it keeps everything green!:)
