of rain and molecules

Rain

Poetry

i didn't wait for the rain

but it still arrived 

as promised 

as inked and bloated by moving scenes 

of people scurrying in the streets, hooded rickshaws 

and uncontrolled laughter of children,

of playful clouds

with the sure breeze; it was spring after all.

i had measured 

my memory of you

against dripping water --

the residue of rain

slipping off leaves; making you 

an afterthought - what with the sound

that my eyes collected instead, in obvious green. 

a poem grew from this grave

as the rain touched my skin. 

 

someone told me, my words

in different poems 

are just one story:

i am just the one, true;

you are too: your arrival and departure 

from this song never died down

like the rain 

you came back; now your formbodyface has changed 

you are:

what can be measured 

against all the molecules

that make me,

           keep me going.
