From rain and melted snow
To find a way to the creek.
To a stream, in a hurried dash to the ocean
And here I stand, with bits of waterfalls
trapped, inside buckets.
Soggy, wicking socks
Make close friends with droplets.
Now trapped inside my shoes
It becomes labor-intensive to attempt an escape
Instead, the would-be waterfall participant
Accepts a ride back home
In time for dinner, A movie and a glass of wine
Then it’s off to the washing machine, and the dryer.
There are many different ways to get to the ocean.

I enjoy your blogs, you have a nice site. Ill be back for more reading!! God Bless!!
Beautiful images! I can see myself in the middle of a muddy road, rain-soaked, and changing a flat tire.
Thanks so much. Sure, I’ll read some and get back to you. Take care!
Great Post. Enjoyed your writing. Very creative. Life has so many offshoots you never know where you may end up. When you get a chance I have poetry under Rhemalogist on my site. I would really like your opinion. Blessings and Peace.
So lovely. ❤️
This is just amazing 😫😫

Awesome! I love that you use pictures to speak your poetry. I use both Architecture & pictures.
I love this. And the bits of humor that trickle throughout.
I will like the use of language in this one.
Loved it. Well written😊
You’re welcome. 🙂
I did try a few different themes. The problem is that so far, on all of them, I’ve gotten the RiisingNovels in a small text at the top, even if I chose a theme with a big picture on top and text on the picture. XD It’s so annoying!
Yeah, I can understand that they keep things from people to make them upgrade. 😛 But I won’t be doing that any time soon. Maybe in the future. 🙂
Widgets? All right. I’ll see if I can find that. Haha, I even tried using a blank layout and add things as I wanted them, but it still places my homepage’s name up top. 😛 Oh well.
Thank you for your time! It was much appreciated!
Thanks so much. I’m not entirely sure which parts you’re referring to. It depends on how you’re searching, either by your reader or by the site. But it seems that the crux of your questions depend upon what theme you’re using. I would suggest you try a few different themes for a while, tinker with them, see how you like them. (Make sure to write down what theme(s) you have used, as WP won’t remember them for you) Readers may not see your theme, for if you are looking at blogs from the reader, the theme may never even appear. It’ll be entirely up to what words you use and any associated image. Each theme contains different font and color selections. These are limited, because WP wants you to buy into upgrading. You might have to do that to get closer to what you want. The comments and any other links placed to the side are widgets. Some themes automatically place specific widgets in certain places under predetermined headings, but you can change these (again, depending upon your theme) to whatever you want and wherever you want as far as the top, the sides, and the bottom. I hope this helps. Take care!
First, I wanted to say that you write very well. 🙂
This part made me smile especially “Make close friends with droplets.” It was an interesting way to describe it.
Second, may I ask a question?
HOW did you make the Title of your page (the linked one that leads to the main page) in a different style and size and on top of an image? I’ve been trying to do that but I can’t seem to find a way.
Second, how did you make this neat commenting thing? Just a link to the side, over the image. It’s wonderful! 😀
That’s what part of the poem is about. So, thanks!
Very true and the detergent, and parts of the socks. “There are many different ways to get to the ocean.”
Yup! It was a smile for me too, but also a reflection that not just dirt but our trash ends up in the sea.
Brilliant, made me smile!
