Self. Centered.

I love to walk alone
in the rain and snow
the colder
the wetter
the better

I hear, understand
nature, myself,
my perosnal nature
a whole lot better

character building
personal challenge; to
prevail against the cold,
the wet, implies some sort
of adversarial relationship
we do not partake

the colder
the wetter
the better
for while tasting fresh snow,
caressing rambunctious rain,
I hear the wind laughing at me
knowing it is nothing personal
for I am truly not that vain.

By poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
