Don't Rain On My Parade
Don't Rain On My Parade.

So many different thoughts,
ideas that are far from
fully formed,
they are like tiny little
candle-flames.
Tea-lights that I'll arrange
in a row,
letting the flames flicker
until some of them
grow.
But these flames,
they are only small
and fragile things,
while the sky is darkening
with rolling clouds
that promise something much more
than a passing shower.
The drops of rain,
when they begin to fall
are large
and they make my tea-lights sizzle.
Luckily there are a few
that are close together
and while some of my budding ideas
become drowned,
victims of a sudden flood,
others I keep burning
in the shelter of
my umbrella hands.
