Poetry challenge #41: In the rain

I’m posting this tonight because I won’t have time tomorrow and the last time I scheduled a post for the next day it didn’t work.

The painting is by Franz Marc entitled In the rain. I like his work. There’s so much going on in it, and so much energy. You have three characters here, a man, a woman and a dog. Except for the dog, they don’t look very happy. The rain is pouring in torrents and the dominant colours are red and steel grey. That must mean something, but what?

Use any poetry form you like, and if you want a bit more inspiration, try using these words:

Rain, red, relentless, river, regrets.

Leave a link to your post in the comments before next Tuesday. I hope I’ll have written a poem by them. Happy writing!

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Not at all too much! It was sort of amusing as I read your description before I saw the painting…expected a conventional scene and then saw it was not so… much room for imagination ๐Ÿ™‚
