A Mud Puddle

A big mud puddle
After a long heavy storm
A boy's great playground.

A brilliant poem so immaculately drafted....wonderful choice of diction! My pleasure reading this beautiful poem time and again with great satisfaction!
It surely is, dear Mrs. Juan-Austin, especially when his mother does not pay attention. A well known scene after a long heavy storm you so well portrayed. Ah, a boy's great playground. A brilliant summing up and so true. A 10 ++++++++++ and much much more. Thank you so much for sharing.
Playing in the mud! ! After the rain. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Yes, a scene I see in my neighbourhood, monsoon being on. Also a lovely metaphor on 'storm',
Not only an aftermaths of a long heavy storm, a metaphor of emotional storms and its after effects. A poem is sometimes a mud puddle that is left behind after heavy emotional storms. A great three liner with a lot of meanings.
