The Umbrella

bows under pressure
when it’s windy or breaks
under heavy use.

—–

flutters cutely or
rebelliously rattles –
just a breath of air.

—–

sensible or not,
solemnly weapon-like, it
follows you around.

—–

take care though, else it
may make a bid for freedom
when you most need it.

  1. Each one of these is such a great take on umbrellas. I rather like the sinister threat of the ominous brolly in four and the freedom it offers in five. Hope you have a wonderful week of blue skies! 🙂
