Rainbow / dampness

Poem – dampness

Rainbow / dampnessBeads of chilled raindrops
Rest and mingle on the
Stepping stones outside
Our door.
They stick to shoes and
The pads on the feet of the dog
Where they wait for rugs and towels
To wring them away.

Winter rain is much like
The tears shed in isolation:
Moisture may collect and
Even join together.
But beyond the numbers
Of our tears
Few will know.

Then again, puddles may form;
Damp reminders of rains
Already fallen.
