Release

as moonlight brightens my path
it strengthens the moment
causing a little sensation
to become
something other

as soon as those clouds
as soon as it is gone
the moon, in hiding
releases its halo

I take a step
which causes a little sensation
in the darkness
for here I am
becoming something other.

Rain

Watching the rain
attacking your windows
you see it run; racing dribbles
wasted energy
liquid rope twisting, turning
trying to find a way in

You don’t notice it
fulfil its purpose
of distracting you
from your sorrow
your memories
your future

you don’t remember
anymore
you are flanked
as the rain seeps
into your skin
your blood
your thoughts

until
you see the rainbow
and like a sponge
you release it all

to become
weightless
free

immaculate
