the same as rain ~

One of my favourite poets with a stunning piece of writing.


The-Early-Evening-Mist-Orton #1

remember now
a twilight touch
(a sigh
the same as rain)
whispering a promise
to remain –
beyond the ease
of leaving
was the will
for letting go
were ever I
(a sorrow
still to know)

wherein the daylight
streamed –
veins and lilac
(to make of us
some other
sunny day)
laid beneath
the timbers
lush with muscadine
yet to trade
(another time)
