Rain Day

I know that the day has only begun,
But the clouds that have gathered, spitting rain,
Indicates that what we’ve planned is now done.
The puddles that have collected will stain
The drowned pavement with life’s expectations
And we will have to huddle within doors,
Complaining about these tribulations.
But do not think of this change as a chore;
Instead, look to what it has to offer.
The day’s deeds can wait for another time.
Go and open the neglected coffer,
And remember what you once found sublime.
It impairs your ability to play,
But don’t let the weather ruin your day.
