the worst plight

drizzling rain falls
on slippery sidewalks,
puddles pooling
in the cracked concrete,
creating land mines for joggers
(& strolling pedestrians alike)
to leap (or step) over
& avoid the worst plight —
wet socks.

  1. Ugh, wet socks are the worst! I love the alliteration in the lines:

    on slippery sidewalks,
    puddles pooling
    in the cracked concrete

    I can practically feel the rain’s chill. Excellent poem, Samantha!
