Wet streets at night reflecting automobile lights

Driving In the Rain at Night

Wet pavement reflects myriad lights
Streams of red from taillights
Splashes of greens and yellows
Rivers of white, flowing
Straight into my eyes
Wide with the night blindness
That comes with age
Night driving, no longer a joy
In a driving rain at night – a nightmare
The eyes of youth are gone

It’s Hell to get old

  1. I was pretty uninspired tonight and it’s raining, so this is what I came up with. Yes, the dog is cowering at my feet again. At least he doesn’t have to drive in it. ;)

  2. True words! I can relate. :)
