Rain And Umbrellas


Snake flowing floes of waterborne umbrella skins,
Beat to the rainfall teeming her tabla thumbs.
Cloud strewn streets dehumdrumed drum.

Aeons flash by caterpillar,
Cleopatra - thanks for dinner;
Mashed potato, balloons and mango,
A dreamy trifle,
An eyelash tango.

Treetops wobble,
A rain splash down,
A glimmer full of sky gleams,
The clotted cream crown.

The sunset echo abloom;
Rippling puddly platters,
Reflect a sparkling dusk-light,
On the dappled marching dragons.
