The Trouble Is It's Raining

Prompt--Write a Poem titled "The Trouble is ___________"


The trouble is, it's raining
And I want to be snorkeling or sailing
But the trouble is, it's raining


I know I should not be complaining
But the trouble is, it's raining


We came for a bit of fun
Not gloom, wind and no sun


My husband's relaxed and reading
While I watch the raindrops beating


Then he reaches for my arm
His grasp is strong and warm


Now, there's no point in struggling
'Cuz I'm in his lap, snuggling
And the rain that popped my happy bubble?
No trouble
