The Midnight Rain

Recommended Posts

douglas

the rain comes down in the night

and it is beautiful

 

the urban lights illuminate the sky

creating a misty water painting

 

buildings merging into the clouds

 

moist watery light

 

tender silhouettes that calm me

 

and

right now

with this music in the background

i feel calm and fulfilled

merging into this languid liquid space

 

soft-washed comfort

 

all of a sudden everything seems peaceful

the sapphire depth of the late evening beautifully elegant

 

and as the song ends

i am absorbed

becoming one

with the rhythm of the midnight rain

Sweet!

 

soft-washed comfort

 

That is a line to kill for!

I'd love to see you going hard instead of soft but (never know, it's always dangerous) you could fall on your arse.

Absolutely lovely and lyrical, Douglas! This is one of my favorites of yours. In addition to the cosmopolitan images ("urban lights illuminate the sky," the "buildings merging into the clouds," and the "moist watery light"), I love the alliteration in "languid liquid space." And I agree with Brendan. "Soft-washed comfort" is indeed memorable.

Doug, spring rain will be happy with you, if she knows how you listened to her, how you worshipped her, she will be touched, tearing. it’s pity I’ve moved into this towering building, closer to the sky, thunders but farther from the rhythm of rain, the fascinating music background.

 

nice poem.

doug,

 

Man merged with nature, mind in the rain. Like the feel of oneness, tranquility in your poem.

 

Many thanks.

Hi douglas,

 

Beauty, as they say, lies in the yes of the beholder. Here, you show how even the urban landscape with its lights and buildings, can take on a magical beauty.

liquid space

 

are wonderfully sensuous.

 

 

Lovely to read your work again and to find you in such flow :D

 

 

Thank you.

Doug, maybe I'm late to add my few words on this, but also I would say it's never late to read and share the pleasure by such a wonderful lyrical piece. I am impressed by this poem. It's elegant and musical. Well done my friend.
