Rain

Rain

Through a square space small
But what definitions of life forms
The eyes focused on the unleashing rain
Sounds of the continuous beating on the roof top
Thunderous, soft, beating incessantly
A musical sound
Misty outside, between the clumps of bamboo
And the tops together swaying hypnotically
Side to side, forward, backward a dance of a slow
samba
Bacarno tall, branches moving the leaves wet
Looking like wet blackbirds
A cabbage palm reaching for the sky
Striking in height forming an umbrella above
With a branch of poui yellow flowers in bloom
Crossing the one legged giant
Humming birds luminous green and red in flight
Mating in mid air, what speed
A spellbound sight
Hillside cleared to plant peas
The smell of cut grass and the smell of shaved pine
Swinging in a hammock - heaven
Then the rain-flies jubilant thousands everywhere
Wings covers the newly made floor
From inside looking through
A small square space at wonders.
