When A Day Of Work Is Like The Rain

Updated on June 12, 2012

We Think We Know But We Are Not Sure

Wake up in the morning and hear rain in the forecast

Our plans might change or we may ride out the storm

We have our schedule for work and we know what time we have to be there

Then again maybe I can have someone work for me if they want the hours and I don't mind losing the money

When we hear the sound of rain we know it is here and how long it will stay we still aren't sure

Walking in the door and not feeling so good we wonder should we go or should we stay

You can see how peoples attitudes quickly change as they look at the rain

They wonder do I want to get wet or should I wait

When we take our first step into work so many thoughts cross my mind

Will this be a busy night or a slow night

A good night or a truely horrible night

We see the sky all dark and know the rain is here to stay

We see a boss we don't like and say it is going to be one of those days

Then up the sky the unexpected has happened is starting to clear up

The grey has turned blue

The boss that you don't like is a little under the weather and has decided to leave early

Now we wait

We know the rain can't last much longer

We know are boss won't make it another hour

The sun is out and the rain is drying up

A boss that we really like has walked in the door and our whole day has changed

Soon the day carries on and know matter what happens today

We know half the day is over and the hours fly by

So if it raining or you are in work complaining

Wait a bit and stranger things have happened

This day could be a good day in the end

      picklesandrufus I find the sound of rain very soothing.It can ruin a nice walk or an outdoor day.As for work it can take my sunshine away and make my beautiful day dark and cloudy.Not a glimpse of light to be found.b.Malin I know if I stick it through the nice days will always out number the bad ones twenty to one.If we are open and willing to see the good in everything the bad can be not that bad instead of bad turned to worse.Thanx everyone for reading and sharing your thoughts.It means so much to me.

      I too see the Wisdom in your words "Dream On". Can't always predict the weather, or how our day will go...When I lived in Baltimore...It was, "Wait a minute" and the weather will change again. As for Bosses...Good, and Bad...and somewhere in between, we survive, and Smile when the Sun and the Bosses "SHINE"!

      My Votes of UP & Interesting are yours!

      tobusiness I am sure you find rain lovely.Refreshing and cool and waking us up to the wonderful world of nature and the pleasure of water.A constant reminder of beauty and wetness.You get to share it with friends.We take it for granted and now you made me think again.Have a wonderful day rain or no rain we will never be the same.

      Living in the UK, one must learn to be friends with the rain or be prepared for a life of depression. Lovely poem. Voting up.

      Happyboomernurse Many days of work and rain come and go.What we remember is up to us to cherish or forever curse.Thanx so much and may your day be extra special in many ways.

      Lots of wisdom in this little poem. All we ever know for sure is what the weather (or our work conditions) are at this moment.

      Life and work is full of the unexpected and can change for better or worse at any given moment.

      Voted up and interesting.
