Untitled (streetlight rain)

Spread the love

Beneath the pitter patter of streetlight rain
I stand independent from care and thought,
as traffic passes by in a whirl of technicolor.

I observed as dreams weave loosely in wind,
and extended, both arms like a foolish child.
Upon the pavement, I see world’s reflection.

I figure it’s not who we’re that holds us back,
glancing out the window, at felicity and woe
rather, it’s societal pressure, that proscribes.

Remember, every cloud, has a silver lining.

    Nice thoughts, Sanaa, they blend well. The falling rain has a magic spell. I loved to run in the rain (back when I could run for exercise and pleasure) as thoughts came to mind that our busy lives would not be bothered to conjure up. I haven’t stopped to ponder but I am sure better thinking would be had than when running.

  13. Love the photo…usually I think of rain in black and white. Perhaps we miss the silver lining because we fail to look.
