cloudbreak!

From this site's commonplace book page; I wrote this poem during summer 2000 and won't tell you which Main Street from which of my former lives this is.

cloudbreak! • 04 November 2004

rain puddle

trilogy 2 — rain

cloudbreak!


remembering places past
a festival of rain on the roof
and on the sidewalks too
my heart
rains wistful memories
touching times long past
yet morning light still breaks
us
into new nostalgia

lunch on main street
endless talk
street puddles
a sunshower
out to the stable to clean the stalls
then up in the gallery
while the
music of sweelinck rings through the room

rain is over
now
it's night
sky's full of stars
welcome to your world of dreams
