    I write better when I'm feeling blue

    The sun hid behind the clouds today,
    and from my bed I could tell
    the second heaven had unleashed
    a watery assault.
    I could hear the rain mocking
    the tires of cars as they sang
    their lyrics against the surface
    of the road.
    I peered sleepily out of my window
    and seen an asphalt truck repairing
    a hole in the street, umbrellas waving
    side to side in cadence with the wind,
    kids splashing around in the
    puddles of water, a fire truck
    hydroplaning noisily to an emergency.
    I read my thoughts to myself:
    "I shall not relinquish control
    of my mood to the darkened, rainy day",
    I said, though I do feel nostalgic,
    and I will flirt with the time
    when I used to have warm moments
    with someone special-
    decked out in fine shoes, a fine suit,
    a fedora to match, as I sang to her
    in the rain, strolling through Times Square,
    whipping around a street lamppost.......
    To a time when we were cascading
    on a shoreline in Long Beach,
    at sunset on the horizon,
    holding hands and kicking sand at
    the other, as she radiated a heart
    skipping smile my way, and formed
    with her voluptuously alluring lips
    silent, smiling words that read "I love you".......
    Just as she was about to plant
    a kiss my way I awakened
    from my stupor and realized.
    I write better when I'm feeling blue.

    Good advice about not relinquishing control of one's mood to the weather no matter if the mood is pleasant or sad. It is not easy to practice.
