Wyoming Rain

I wanted to go for a bike ride

but I waited around.

Then the sky turned dark

and the rain came down.

Just like that

everything around me

became dark ,

wet, and  oh, so gloomy.

The storm moved in –

I heard the thunder rolling

and saw flashes of lightning.

The sunlight disappeared –

will it ever return again?

For a moment I was

scared as I had ever been.

That’s when I learned –

Wyoming rain doesn’t last.

So watch it fall on the grass

because just as fast

the dark clouds roll pass.

Wyoming rain doesn’t last.

Years later and a little older

I’m back in my hometown

when my sky turned dark

and troubles came around.

Just like that

worry consumed me

when my outlook

became dark and gloomy.

The storm moved in –

what was I to do?

Will I make it through?

My smile disappeared –

will it ever return again?

There I was

scared as I had ever been.

But troubles are like storms –

and Wyoming rain doesn’t last.

So life will give you all it has

but remember that just as fast

this too shall pass

Wyoming rain doesn’t last.

  1. Well, my dark mood will probably return since the source of the conflict is still very present. It relates to my meme on Friday. Still can’t divulge details. Yet.
    I live in a high mountain desert. Almost 7,000 feet above sea level but surrounded by sagebrush.
    There is a saying here, “If you don’t like the weather here…wait five minutes.” We also have had rain on seemingly sunny days (true story – due to wind).
    The wind tends to blow away any moisture we may get. Nasty stuff, that wind. Only the tough thrive here 😉
