Cloudy, with a chance of …

Third grade still haunts me,
Its science lessons numbed.
Frustrated I gleaned
Weather facts from picture books,
Spun vinyl records of weather songs
Maybe Schoolhouse Rocks
Over and over and over.

Cumulus, Cirrus, Stratus
Stratocumulus, Altocirrus,
Cumulonimbus, Cirrostratus
Indistinguishable to my brain.

And I was the teacher.

Due to my jammed schedule this year, I will be an occasional, but happy OctPoWriMo participant.
