June 14, 2013

          Under the warm blanket
          I listen to the music of the rain
          The hollow percussive sound of its drops on the leaves
          Above the luscious leafage of the trees
         
          A moment of a drop
          Out of its eternal showers
          Slowly glides on top of one leaf
          Clinging onto its felt-like surface
          For another shattered fragment of time
          While in the background, a lonely bird still laments
          The suffering of its existence
