It Drizzled Last Night

Fireflies have gone into hiding
Accosted by shadows of night
Dreams that ventured out
Having lost their way
Now wait under the mushrooms
Growing on the wizened trunk

Infant dawn has arrived
A crimson smile on cherubic face
Treading gingerly,
On slippery stones
It waits for the breeze
At my garden gates

Under a canopy of clouds
Pulsating stillness of morning sky
Waits at my moistened windowsill
For the breeze to sing
Ballads of the waves
And songs of the boats

The whole night it drizzled
And breeze stayed awake
Searching words
Scripting lyrics, my friend!
Yet, the last stanza of her poem
Remains unfinished

Dawn at my garden gates
Sky at my windowsill
Dreams under the mushrooms
All shall have to wait
For the ballads of the waves
And songs of the boats
As the breeze had stayed awake
While it drizzled the whole night
It Drizzled Last Night1.jpg
