midnight rain

moonsoons bursts
in the middle of the night
-i awake.

infinite raindrops
bouncing in the courtyard
loudly oblivious to all

after the first rains
pearly tears drip down slowly
staining window panes

I loved the way u used the space ... gave it tht extra punch

also enjoyed the carefree attitude of the rain .....

and finally the way u said "louldy oblivious"

wht i had it for me - well rain to me is magic and to feel it in words is simply out of the world

as usual enjoyed it immensely

alok- thank you so much for appreciating it so!! i love the rains...they make everything so clean and fresh...to use a cliche but its true right.
