BOREDOM
Siiiiiggghh! sigh
sky
same as yesterday grey
cloud cloud cloud
will not this rain go away

Siiiiiggghh! sigh
wind
lots of wind
no wind

Siiiiiggghh! sigh
void
no word no thought
no rain
no wind
no sky

Siiiiiggghh! sigh
boredom
breath of
emptiness

Siiiiiggghh! sigh
no tea
no poetry
keep me
in thy pithy
dear boredom
thee

Siiiiiggghh!
sigh

  2. Curiously those whose weather is the most kind normally grumble more than those where it is severe...as we do here as well! Now neither of us is allowed to feel sorry for the other OK?

  10. I definitely think bored people do a lot of sighing..you definitely captured the essence of the mood; and alas I found myself sighing as I read. Smiles.

  11. I love your sighing chorus! In the poem as a whole, you manage to evoke world-weariness and humour at the same time.
