the long cold rainy day remembering


on this memory
of a rainy day
when all the powers
that be
and have been created
are hovering side-by-side
by side
in my remembering

and there's so little to redeem
the deep-seated hopelessness

no hope for changing
the feeling
of cold within
and without
my body

i find solace and release
in the music of riceboy sleeps
as it reminds me
of the moment
of promise
contained
within each raindrop

Profound words, music and visual poetry. I was mesmerized. Happy summer wind in your face.

Rich, Rainy Reflections. I love the visuals and the sense created with the poem itself. It is a feeling many have shared. The music is a welcome place of refreshment, a poem in sound. Thank you.

Is there anything more beautiful than water? Your poetry, this music, well, they come close, don't they?

It's all part of the balance.
