Defeated

She collapsed on her shadow,
both drenched in a sea of rain,
even her umbrella gave in,
left behind….a flood of pain

well your poem, and the response from Fee below inspired this:

dropped in on sudden
whim to soak in sunshine's warmth,
she rainbowed deeply

Be always well, dear Christine.

Such effective imagery perfectly describes this universal feeling. Then the rain stops falling and it's time to stand up, time for a new experience.

small kiss of sunshine
from the lips of someone true
rainbow starts new day


Someone once said "the skies are always darkest just before the dawn"...I think your poem needs a new dawn. If we had of collaborated on this one Chrissie the ku above would have been my wish for you.
