Poem: Stomp and Splash

 Stomp and Splash

Sadness drops in uninvited
sometimes,
hanging around like a wet raincoat,
dripping on the floor,
puddling at your feet,
making a mess of things,

sadness

here’s what to do,

pull on galoshes,
plant your feet,
stomp and splash
‘til nothing’s left
‘cept a small reflection
of your smile
in a tiny drop 
of sadness.
