Autumn In The Rain - Poem by Ram Krishna Singh

The faces appearing
and receding in
dark of closed eyes

don't answer why
they aren't winged souls
fading in the sun

I emptied before it set
in the gowns of girls
stopped from dancing barefoot:

they shake autumn in the rain
mist blurs the image
water spills in shady pool

    Lovely imagery. And quite expressive words.

    Excellent work, R.K.
