the wet September ‘why’

A Poem a Day in September: #32

there has been rain
all my gullies run

debris on the paths
lies in snakes and swales

and in a minute
or so
there’s going to be more

this September
wet days
are becoming the norm

but in my rubber boots
I can make quite a splash
wherever I step
step
step
is a watery dance

I can twirl around
my umbrella open
and unfurled

and everyone knows
a wet September

and the swales

and the rain

they
are the reasons
why
