Rain

by RGstar

Poem of the Month Contest Winner 


Rain

A tangled lace binds shoes I wear
Oh, mother dear, your absence clear
With tiny steps I greet the rain
Each crystal breath; a soft refrain
Silken threads of make-believe
Where tiny hearts in silence grieve

A year tonight; your sleepless sleep
I asked the rain if spirits keep
Through windows wide it came with fleet
You whispered then; ''in the rain we'll meet''
A sigh deferred that scent of old
'Twas then I felt your fingers cold

Mamma, I promised strong to be
Yet dreams become the best of me
I walk alone in fields so steep
With troubled grass and worried sheep
For seeds were never deeply sown
As weeds and earth took all I'd known

Then tap, tip tap; on windows play
Transparent veins its rivulets lay
I rush to greet the swarming rain
Your voice, I thought, I heard again
Your lips, my lips, your kiss, my kiss
Soft minted mist, oh, how I miss

Goodnight mamma; a year will wait
Of school again: I'm doing great
The plant you gave blooms like a tree
Its limbs outstretched consoling me
And like my love, it will sustain
With gentle drops of autumn rain

...Yes! Mamma
... gentle drops of autumn rain
