Rain Overnight - Poem by Ananta Madhavan

Overnight rain has left the tarmac wet.
The handrail of the balustrade
Has a row of raindrops clinging on,
Not yet adrip. I count them
Like my memos, grievances and hopes.

Rain, revisit us at any season,
In dribbling drizzle or showers benign,
But not as deluge or cyclonic wreckage.
I love your tokens under eave and rail,
Nascent pearly raindrops, still adrip.

    Thank you, Poet-compatriot. You are quick to look at another's contribution with fellow-feeling,
    though it may not be listed. I see that your own verses are adding to our stock regularly. It is
    a joy to follow natural changes everywhere and to seek phrases to express it. Best wishes, AM
