After The Rain Poem by Sonny Rainshine

After The Rain

Rating: 5.0

One Chinese lantern,
forgotten when the lawn party
was spoiled by a summer downpour,
waves in the drizzly wind
from a nylon string.
Something sad in the air
comingles with the fragrance
of yellow jasmine, yes
yellow jasmine.

Water colors the scent of ennui sways wet on the jasmine wind; And longing is, indeed, yellow.... Simply beautiful. Sandra

I don't believe I've ever smelled jasmine...but this poem makes me want to do so. Lovely poem. I can actually see that poor lantern hanging limply, soggy from the rain... Hugs, Dee
