Rain, Book 2

(source/ copyright: NATGEO Photography,
Second Beach, Washington,1997 by James C. Richardson )

Rain at night

Tonight, as the rain cascades,
Beautiful memories resonates,
Tonight, a raindrop mistakes,
Lamps for fireflies and human days
**** chapter 1****
Gazing at the far horizon,
Where the rain meets the stars and night,
Mesmerizing twinkles of light,
Reflecting on symmetrical raindrops,
Cascading in divine harmony,
Visible only to the eyes of lovers
Rain in the forest

These tiny sparkling raindrops,
Slowly caressing green leaves,
Seconds after seconds whole trees,
In cold, wet, sensual bonds
****chapter 2****
Lying on my warm bed,
Cold thick air blanketing me,
Tiny cells on eternal war,
Against this cool cold invasion,
Minute upon minute I journey,
Into a thousand philosophical rage
Rain and life

Slow cascades in dancing motion,
Drowning paths and life in commotion,
In relative time and natural dedication,
The earth and its souls in watery sensation
****chapter 3****
Walking on the thin cold line,
Wishing this sensation not to stop,
Humans, some creatures and plants,
In mysterious hegemony over space and time,
Dreaming, chanting and making love,
Boundaries non existence until tomorrows light

Rain meets sunlight

Men and women in the eternal night,
Cascading rain all time in flight,
From mountain ends creeps sun light,
Magically the diamond rain still in sight

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
