When It Was Winter - Poem by Eman Elbadawi

First, when the shadow stood
Behind the window
It wasn't winter yet
Or it was winter -
No one could say for sure I knew:
It is winter
It's very cold
But it dosn't rain
And it seems it won't.
Then suddenly it started to rain:
One drop
Two drops
The eye gazed
Behind the windows:
It rained
A hundred drops
A thousand
A million
A thousand million -
Until the world was clean!
