Kiss The Rain


As the lips kiss the falling rain
Through the time tunnel of a window pane
As raging torrents of nostalgia drain
For a stroll down the path of memory lane
In the dichotomy of her hues - mirth and pain
As a heart seeks refuge in a flame arcane
To coast to empyrean heights like a soaring crane
To metamorphose to the shelter of a blissful plane
Searching for ablution in torrents of champagne
For the heart to be never ever held in restrain
To be ripped from within by melancholy's stain
As the heart rages on in her campaign
To capture the silky strands of a sylph's mane
To lavish on her a sprinkle of love inane
To garnish a spiritualism transcending the mysticism of Jain
For love to germinate in her blend of madness and sane
To metamorphose to a believer of love, yet again

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
