The Other Side Of The Glass - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

A rain drop
hits the windowpane.

You can almost
hear the slap

from here.

The windowpane
looks stunned.

It just
stands there
stares.

And at first, one
then more

teardrops
run down its face.



A fly
walks unperturbed

across
its field of tears

that only exist


on the other side



of the glass.

    fine imagery,
    ...A fly
    walks unperturbed
    across
    its field of tears... My pleasure to read this thank you for sharing
