Another Rainy Day


Image

















Another rainy day
hot coffee on the tray
the aroma fills up the cold air
shooing away the grey

I smile just like on other days
reminiscing the sweet  memories
sharing coffee and butter cookies
as if there was no yesterday

Now, I sip slowly the coffee
and take a bite of the cookie
alone am I, or is it only me
No, I still have the coffee

And I start to sing softly...

"Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.
Rain, rain, go away,
Let the sun reveals its rays."

  1. Rain certainly is a blessing. It can rain as much but not when floods result. Then destruction can follow! Wonderful write Balqis!

    1. Indeed, it's a blessing but too much of it could turn out disastrous. Thank you, Hank. :)
