The rain slipped down the window
Like snakes across clear sand.
My mind began to wander
And my imagination ran.
The looming thunderheads sang songs
And the lightening did a dance.
I watched the stormy theater show
And fell into the usual trance.
Chores were suddenly futile,
And writing was a bore.
I began to wonder
What work was even for.
Sleeping sounded wonderful–
A nap would be a treat.
I heaved a heavy sigh
And admited my defeat.
The rain came like it always does
On lonely summer days
And stole my motivation
Like it stole the sunlit rays.
