Rain Again (A Poem) by NhSnailwrites(f): 2:11am On May 16
The day is over,
the lone night is here.
I sit to hear their song,
to hear them sing to me.
Beautiful creatures, who chirp songs,
in a language only they know.

A strange quiet surrounds me
My soul, captured in ecstasy
I hear the ticking of the clock,
I feel the air on me
I am lost,
Lost in the melody they herald

Here is,
my smorgasbord of beautiful moments,
this time, that I hold so dear
As I'm comforted, in frith
Clearness engulfs my heart
Oh, this moment is all there is

Flap, flap,
I hear the fluttering of their wings
My cronies gone, sans a peace out
It's you who is here
opening the Heavens, without a warning
I see the glint of lightning

Here I am,
shivering in the chilly wind
But I see you not
I hear only the rumbles of thunder
I see only flashes of lighting
Will it not rain?

Yesterday,
you fell in torrents
Will you wring just a few droplet today?
Have you gone to the North or have you chosen the East?
Have you made the South rainy?
Can I wait for you tonight or do I wait some other time?

Will it rain another day?
