memories (poem)



as the rain pours

watching drops indistinguishable

from each other

in torrents of memories

hazy sheets on a hazy night

parting in puddles


and merging again

in darkened pools

of memories

Rainy Days (poem)




cumulus clouds collect

covering sky and shading earth

i feel

their pressure building even within me

as they darken

menacingly threaten

and finally burst

a gentle shower that

coaxes tears to flow

in rivulets, then torrents

and finally subsiding

to faint sobs

— a distant rumbling in the sky

after a shower.
