Dribs & Drabs

by Chris Sorrenti

Dribs and Drabs
That’s how the story goes

Raindrops come together
Transform into rivers
That flow into the sea

The sky dumped a big load yesterday
But today there’s nothing new

Sometimes it’s more Drab
Than Drib
Or the other way around
That’s how the story goes

But no one really minds
They know the cycle by heart
What’s gone today is back tomorrow

Days of quiet dissolve into
Varying degrees of crises
Good and bad

Yet out from the panic
Rise new realities
Coming in
Dribs and Drabs

It is a clever way to talk about how things develop, ebb and flow, "dribs and drabs" an amusing innocent sounding little pair. Thanks for this, Chris.
