Forever Amber

An October Drizzle

The damp breeze cools my face
As I stare out of the window.
All is quiet, even the birds are still.
I savour the silence -
It's a welcome reprieve.

Tiny raindrops blow onto the grilles
and glisten, unshed tears awaiting their turn
to gently kiss the waiting window sill.
