I said is it Raining?

Updated on September 26, 2015

I said is it raining?

If the sun had given forethought

to the erogeny of the rain-soaked leaves

clinging to the bare earth,

the moisture that laid between them

as they clung together in silent ardor,

then it may not have decided to show

its peeping face which dried out

the last remnants of their amity.

Foliage, stricken and shocked,

turned up against the earth

under its watchful scrutiny –

to be taken away from warmth by the wind.


toss and turn

as lonely women in their beds at night

who wait for the rain to come once more.
