I'm just not the same.........

I opened my eyes
and looked up at the rain,
it dripped into my head
and flowed into my brain.
All that I hear,
as I lie in my bed
is the slishity-slosh
of the rain in my head.
I step very softly,
I walk very slow
I cannot do a handstand -
I might overflow.
So, pardon the crazy - wild -
thing I just said,
I'm just not the same
since there's rain in my head.
by Shel Silverstein

Love it, eh! You are quite the poet which must be caused by all that sloshing around inside your head. :-)

Such a creative lady!

What a lovely poem. I can relate right now, as we have had lots of rain in the Hill Country. It's still overcast and really cool for May in Texas!

Jackie said...

PS I love Silverstein. I use to read his work(s) to my students...and to my children.
He rocks!

Everytime it rains here....which lately has been often, I repeat this poem, much read to my daughter and then grands. Love the photos you chose to go with this great poem. Hope you're doing well, Oma Linda
