Rain is falling

branches ready to snap

leaves blow everywhere

he waits to go rake

leaves pile higher

at least clear a path so I won’t fall down

little at a time will get the job done


Rain is falling

look the sun just came out

grab your rake and go

it might not last long

glistening on tree

how can you take a nap at times like this

it could be the last time we see this sun


dVerse prompt on a pet peeveβ€” like when my husband doesn’t help raking leaves 🍁 and I sit writing this

  1. Procrastination is something I find irritating in others, but alas something I’m very forgiving of in myself. I was searching for the Halloween theme here as I read until the chilling last line. Spooky! Nice duodora form also, candy corn bonus earned!


  2. Like this piece, familiar trappings. Procrastination comes far too easily to me, and then when my ADD flips, I can work, head down, like a demon β€” both sides of that coin are exhausting.
