Paradox: A Picnic Rained Out

Splashing, lashing rain
green grass giving; picnic spoiling
bounty bringing; ball game ending
paradox of good and bad.
Birds get hoppy; puddles sloppy,
rainbow hues; muddy shoes
drippy day; diamond display
welcome annoyance,
dreary blessing.

………………………………………………………………………………………….
Our school’s Year-end picnic and play day was held Saturday.
We had lunch together, watched it pour, then all gave up and went home.
But we welcomed the moisture.
