Prompt 70: Blue Rain

Thanks to Lissa at Just Writing Words for the prompt blue rain this week. Thanks, Lissa, for the photo, too!

yesterday my mind refused to expand any thoughts
it has left me alone
to dwell inside this crumpled body
aching without reprieve
all day I hid underneath a black cloud
shifting my heels
I fell into a puddle of blue rain
and slipped into darkness
when I opened my eyes
everything has changed into one hue
when the blue sun came out
a strange amusement took over me

  1. Wonderful prompt! Thanks Lissa. Love your interpretation too.

  2. Thank you Lissa, this was a nice and very challenging prompt. I had fun with it.
    I like your use of blue, I had thought of a moody poem too. Yours was much better than mine would have been, it kept me trying to decide if you would get into a better mood or not.
    Thank you,
