Sun Retracts

My friend calls me 
says her clothes
remain unwashed.
Washing becomes  
the foremost concern

This season the drizzle 
and the pour make us wary 
our chores remain  undone 
 as we wait for the sun 
to come out.  

It is  hide and seek, The sun peeps 
through the windows, shines feeble 
rains come with a force, As if in fear
it retreats all too timid.. Rains 
reign supreme.

The garden becomes slushy, 
porch turns wet, the pathway 
is soaked, it is water everywhere
Dull and damp the week passes.
the warning  is for one more week.
