Rain lashing (a quadrille)

Rain moodily makes misty motifs
on the wall across the window
recreating the sodden past
writing tear soaked lettersĀ 
with melodramatic mawkishness


I slam the window-pane in its face
in retaliation,
it slams hard against the pane
the broken glass laughs


I stand shivering.

dVerse: Monday quadrille 133

Rain song

Rains came gushing, hearing my plea
I hop, I skip, I jump in glee
confines of walls, I quickly flee
Oh to be free, oh to be free!

umbrellas, raincoats make me glum
puddles, paper boats here I come
snivels and sneezes spoil my fun
give me some rum, give me some rum!

I snuggle under the warm sheet
in your arms, close to your heart beat
listening to the rain’s song sweet
feeling complete, feeling complete.

Today’s verse is in monotetra form for Grace’s challenge at dVerse.
