ON A RAINY DAY....

the meandering movement of a water drop on the surface of a leaf...
the hesistant reality that craves for confirmation..in submission to a belief..

Over the green...the drop rests..along the slight droop..
Some sleepy dream..to wake up....struggles within the thinking loop...

In preparation for the sunshine that will be...
Reflected from the water..some hidden rays i see...

I tighten my grip ..on the umbrella...i wonder about the angle of the rain...
drops of water on my hand....the effort is lost in vain...

I want ...to own and keep ....that leaf I had just seen...
The clouds will take away the day..I just cannot preserve the green...

The umbrella swirls .....and drops fall all around...
Here it is...smiling at me..the hidden memory that I have found...

I want to loosen the hold and let her go free...
Two kids walking in red raincoats ...right ahead I see...

I pick up the leaf now..and put these thoughts on it...
If...if I could hold a coffee mug in both my hands....and pause here and sit...

I brush away ...these silly thoughts...on a rainy day...
With the leaf in one hand....and my umbrella in the other..I smile...and walk away...

On a rainy day......
