When did windshield wipers change?

I found this Robert Shure poem I copied decades ago from a little book called TWINK

English: Windscreen wiper

My windshield wipers have fallen in love.
Really? It should be an ideal romance
Do you think so?
Oh Yes, they go everywhere together.
They won’t be happy.
Why not?
They’ll be too frustrated.
In the rain, they rush together for a
fleeting kiss, but they never quite make it.
That must be unbearable.
I don’t think they’ll be able to stand it.
They are probably better off without rain,
when they can just lie there and
stare at each other. 

Do you think this is why my wipers now are parralel so they won’t get so frustrated? Ah Life’s questions.

  1. opposite of better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all? We have a rare June rain for CA. I’ll check with my wipers… fun Poem !


    1. Always good to start the day with a laugh. Glad I could do it. I see so many flowers that I can’t identify so I don’t put them in the blog but I often say to myself “I bet Cathy knows what these are.”
