Downpour

the window
rain running down

just a few inches
visible grass

For 'Finding Your Way Home' written as another me — recalling observations of my child self.

For dVerse, a tenWord poem, sourced from a longer piece I once wrote about childhood experiences.

  1. Mhmmmm! Kind of contemplative even when a child. Why am I not surprised. ox

    1. I think you have infused it with your own positivity — which is nice.

  3. To me there is a tone of loneliness in this.

    Tender fingertips
    drawing unread messages
    on the frosted window glass.

    1. A sweet interpretation, Bjorn, and i love your verse in reply. In fact I was simply interested in how much the heavy rain hid the view. :)

  4. this poem sounds like a great one to read on a chilly day when there is a steady drizzle...while sitting before a warm fire, of course!
