Treasure Island

Manonton Dalan

(virginia, usa)

after the rain


certain stillness up above
harmony after raindrop
birds start singing again
trees dripping wet; clean

fruit washed; so beautiful to look at
i could see ants crawling on branch
later on, grass grow, flowers bloom
as grasshoppers hopping for room

feel freshness of wind blow
hear ruffling leaves in hollow
see ebbing river; crystal clear
breath freely love is here

    An interesting acheivement. The gradual progression into rhyming couplets makes me think of a dropp of water steadily flowing into a trickle and then a stream, growing with the swell of water... though I may be completely wrong! Even if I am I still thoroughly enjoyed it so well done x (Report) Reply

    Despite gloomy clouds in the sky, we will find the way to sunshine......
    And we shall bath in the sunshine-after the rain. :) (Report) Reply
