Boredom has set in and looking out at a rainy day, and checking the sky, a sudden impulse to GO out in it hits you. What do you do?

As I Sit

watching the rainfall come down quick

I want to swiftly rundown

the street, as water and raindrops call to me

Go, to race the sky, beat the sun

and break the rainbow, to finish first

Now I no longer sit, I stretch,

Yes thats me

I can be quite complex

As I no longer sit but thirst,

to pursue a quest

and beat the rest.

I love how the poem starts off slowly, and accelerates really really quickly, then slows down so the reader can catch up. it seemed to me as I read it in my mind.

That is amazing! I wrote from a runner's boredom to building anticipation of running. Thanks for the comment Cathy.
