just another day

just another day

striving to ignore
the sundry aches and pains
the flesh is heir to

I sit and watch
the rains incessant flow –

birds flit
from shrubbery to feeders
wallow in puddle baths –

I struggle
with a vague desire
to don a coat

wonder if I
dare venture out
to taste

the sodden air
