Crystal Wet Sky

Crystal wet sky
Darken so bright
And here I am searching my heart to find
What is it I want for my life

Rain is falling hitting the ground
Bring musical dripping sound
Hitting the puddle
As I sat here tapping my finger
On the table top

Thunder start to roar
And lightning flashed my eyes…
Spark a spirit out of me…
Shut the window before I get strike

Far from the window I sat..
Continue tapping the table…
Thinking what is it I want for my life?

Decided to get a cup of coffee
And see if that help me…
And then I came to realize…
All I want is to get married

Head down against the my knee
Just thinking, is that a need?
Yes, that’s what I see
But I also thought of family

I choose them first before I
And left my wants behind
Fiance know what was in my mind
Marriage certificate we sign

But I felt my marriage is not complete
Because I want a ceremony
To be recognized…

I was lost in confusion
For a while…
But came into realize that..
True love don’t need a big ceremony

Its right here in our heart…

It's amazing what strikes us, sometimes. For me, the thing I'll most likely remember "forever" from this poem is not your overall message--it's simply the term,

"...a glass of coffee."

I just can't make coffee and glass go together in my head! LOL!

Then again, I am pretty much a hardcore redneck when it comes to taste...or lack thereof. Coffee = cup. Styrofoam. Paper. Ceramic. My wife drinks coffee, but she has ailments, drops things. Glass is not an option, most especially glass with heated contents....

Oh. Yeah. Love. You're correct, of course. No big ceremony needed.

Voted Up and a bunch.

@Ghost32, in Nepal most of the people drink tea and coffee in glass, steel tumblers are also called glass.

@Chan, I loved the way you compare weather and your state of mind.

Chan, I love your poem! It is beautifully written and it send a great message that love is from the heart, not the ceremony itself.
