Sun Seeker Sadness

Sunflowers drooping on a gloomy day

Gloomy skies above

Melancholy moods below

Crestfallen heads droop

The Rains Return

rain
There are gloomy skies in Portland

The persistent rains have come back

And many people think it’s grand

There are gloomy skies in Portland

In pouring rain some love to stand

And their love for rain doesn’t lack

There are gloomy skies in Portland

The persistent rains have come back

Triolet

(I was thinking of my grandson Dylan when I wrote this poem. He loves the rain so very much)
