Colourful: Umbrella

Written during the Colourful Writing workshop in October 2019 at Luckan.

My umbrella never functions as it should.

It does not open.

It refuses to fold and close.

It never talks to me.

It stays there, in my bag.

Rain and snow are scared of it.

Just need to bring it along,

and the skies clear up.

The magic of an umbrella!

umbrella: needed

rain falling in heavy drops

my shield is at home

autumn rain showers

shoes become thoroughly wet

umbrellas save hair-does

sudden rain falls

people run for shelter

except umbrellas
