It Rains

 

 

Rain pouring

from soot coloured sky

in the early afternoon

air damp and cold

burnished leaves droop

under the weight of water

windows streaked

disrupt the view

eyes half-closed

In the full moon

the silence

enters the soul

 

I recall words he said

and what I said

No More Time

A figure stands at a grave side

coat brushes the loose dirt

 

Death swirls around the figure

Remembrance

 

Crisp autumn morning

the silence

In my pocket

a ring I took off

memories come in waves

 

Deep breath exhaled

can one go on

without regret

refusing to leave

taking parts of me

as if you had

some kind of right
