About the Poem

Missing him ...

A Few Visitor Comments

i like it very much coz it is remain about my life.
A perfect little poem, nothing extraneous, nothing left out. So very physical. I can feel the damp and dank, the cold air through my nostrils as I inhale, the sound of a distant car driving through a puddle the smells of the end of Autumn, a tightness in my chest from a feeling I can't quite place.
Very well done! Unbelievably moving.

Tears In Rain

What is it about tears
In rain
Those gray shadows casting
Dampened spirits
Across a lamplit street
Forging fingerprints
On oil-slick puddles

What is it about rain
In tears
Stretching ghostly hands
Through a city park
From skeleton trees
Your voice echoing
In the wind
