Raindrops

 

there is absolutely an archaic music ruffling in my ear,
I call it home.
pitter-patter raindrops,
wrapping a ceremony around my waist.

There is belongingness to this body,
with nature being receptive of my patterns.
A short, polka dot marrying the tablecloth.
the small details that you often ignore.
And I surrender my eyes, amongst the worldly chaos.
The chopping of walnuts, the breaking of my patient knuckles,
as if waiting desperately for something abnormal to occur.

Raindrops/ a plural form of tears.
or a. singular verb. to soothe the reaction of popping pills.
I rest my fingertips,
whirling blue pain,
as heavy a s a cotton ball
on the drops of this waterfall.

  4. These lines have such an effect on me “there is absolutely an archaic music ruffling in my ear,
    I call it home.
    pitter-patter raindrops,
    wrapping a ceremony around my waist.”
    Rain is such a beautiful creation of nature. Wraps you in her sadness giving you the surreal feeling of the joy you have never felt before. Who else can love you in extremes like her?
