It Had Begun To Rain


On a blue canvas,
few patches of black and grey.
thats how
the sky is looking today.

Near that far end,
sun has almost set.
red and orange rays bend
from amidst the clouds.

The sky seems larger today,
why?
is this magic of the grey?
it may.

Interrupted into my thoughts,
the whistle of the rail.
i almost didnt noticed
it had begun to rain.

    hi dear...
    i read your poem, i think it was direct and this is not good for a poem...and decrease the authority of your poem.
    try to write when you are really have a real feeling about that thing, , , because you should not lie to yourself, especially in poet!
    be successful............. (Report) Reply

    This is a lovely poem, short and sweet. I think the shorter poems are the best. (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
