The Rain Song

The Rain Song

 

Sitting on my balcony

I watch the green sight,

The top of trees quiver –

Their leaves drip light.

 

The sky dark as night,

Yet with hints of light;

Crows hop restlessly –

On branches astride.

 

Thunder rips my soul,

Light dazzles my sight –

As sound of steady rain 

Soaks my heart’s quiet.

 

Music playing indoors

Pervades my senses –

Lyrics soft and tender

As if rain in my mind.

 

Amidst gleams of light –

Thunder roaring aloud;

I hear soft rain on leaves

Singing a ballad of my life.
