day

the rain pours down
upon the town
slishes splashes
on the ground

pedestrians run
to get away
under awnings
in doorways

umbrullas shiny
dot the streets
autos splash
the sidwalks neat

puddles plenty
children play
splish and splash
away the day

then a sliver
in the west
clouds will scatter
rain will rest

glory to the
setting sun
g’night to all
the day is done

Metaphysics

Klaus J. Gerken

Can I be odd?
I don’t want to be a fraud
And appear normal!

Normal’s a word
That can be absurd
Dressed up too formal!

I shudder to hear
With a tinny tin ear
That we might be subnormal!

But what can I say
I’d give it away
If I believed us to be paranormal!
