Today’s word: UMBRELLA

Definition: a device that is used for protection from the rain and sun.

An arun.

Umbrella

on
rain days
umbrella
opens, protects
as we puddle jump

soon
sunshine-
umbrella
quick, snap, closes
it’s our walking stick

rain
returns
umbrella
pops up, opens
splish, splash splosh, splish

    Love this! What a fun poem! I saw Mary Lee’s poem today, too. So great.

    Love the arun, so succinct, just right, Jone. Our rainy days are like this, never know when it will start, or stop.

    Love the phrase “puddle jump.” Reminds me of e e cummings.

  4. Tara Smith says:

    Great use of snappy verbs, Jone. Loved this!
