muddling puddles


my galoshes are sloshed.
i’m gonna need a bum
to keep my willy-nilly birthday
suit(e) saved unscathed
from all this mud
-(d)led muck.

the sun’s come out again.
i miss the stuck-struck spill
of my jelly-belly wellies filling
with rhymin’ writhin’ writin’

    So much fun, De! I love the bum-bershoot. 🙂
    My younger daughter and I were just talking about how when she was little, I’d take her for walks where she’d jump and splash in the puddles. She said, the oil puddles were rainbows.

    Oh my….smiling I am! It reminds me of the Wednesdays I would pick up my two grandkids when they were very young, from their preschool. The school believed children should play outside, no matter the weather. So there I’d be, in the rain….taking my two young grandkids to the back end of the hatchback car, sitting them up on the car…pulling off muddy boots…stripping down from their rain pants and somehow, they even had mud in their underwear!!!! There was a HUGE mud puddle the kids loved to stomp in! Sigh…..I learned to bring wet washcloths and towels to wash off their faces for the ride home. They were happy as clams! 🙂 Thanks for the memories!

  9. This is a fun form. Playful.
