After The Rain - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

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.

    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...

    Your poem makes me yellow
    with envy
    though may i suggest
    to replace single with lone

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

    Simply beautiful.
