Rainy Day (poem)

A rainy day
full of fog and a dreary feel
even though the temperature
is a pleasant 43 degrees outside,
and I am enjoying my three day weekend
since I took an extra day off work
for my birthday weekend.

Sipping my caramel latte
at Starbucks
and trying to find inspiration to write.
Life’s busyness
and a writing dry spell
combine to stop my pen
and my poetry.

The gray skies
are gloomy
but somehow that
inspires me
on this rainy February day.
