Raindrops ...


written for MAGPIE TALE 60


When the falling rain
tiptoes on earth,
the drizzle cautiously
embraces the breeze and
kisses my window pane; 
when a sudden gust of wind
tosses my stubborn tendrils,
I raise my face
toward the falling rain,
I lose myself. 

You had once worn this rainfall
and left it in my courtyard. 
Its fold and fabric caressed you, 
its creases held you close, 
cuddled you.
The imprint of your love
is still visible on its sleeves.
That’s why I wear it too; 
to feel it all over me and
hear the resonance of your voice
in its melodious rustling.
At times, it feels
a little tight near my chest
when I recall the tug of your hand
groping for me unconsciously in sleep. 
The rainfall you wore
and left on my courtyard 
is still vibrant and warm as life.


Now I wait alone for another rain to come
so that we can wear it together, just one more time!
