Watching and waiting for the tendrils of rain ~ which never happened. Waiting For Rain - 23 Jul 15 Watching Slow movements Cloud builds through the day Late evening thunder Mutters in the distance Promised rain Holds the promise Teasing with noisy cloud It would have been good for some rain to fall and even better for a plasma storm too.

Sometimes [Acrostic] - 22 Jul 15 Stretching into the night Over the ocean dark Marbled clouds across Eternity are strewn Timeless wishes Infinity’s dreams Miles upon miles Endless journeying Somewhen we shall meet I really like the challenge of forming a poem within the constraints of an acrostic.

Hearing the song caused this poem to come into being.
