"Today" by David Pring-Mill, Frequent Contributor



Today
David Pring-Mill

It looked cloudy
when I glanced out the window
before my walk.
So I took an umbrella with me.

The overall 
presentation changed
when clouds parted,
with scenery
dramatically becoming
illumed by lovely rays.
Now,
with umbrella in hand,
I just look like a pessimist.


Poet's Notes:  This happened to me. I wrote the poem on my smartphone while I was wandering around outside with the useless umbrella.
