The day took off
lazy and cloudy,
closed within the walls of home
and closed within the doors of mind
I sat watching;
as the small drops stained my clear windows
my thoughts drifted to some earlier days
when the rain used to be a joy
during my teens I had once
when this used to be the most awaited
to be with my love,
to play with my mates,
to spend the indoors with family but,
gone are those days.
When life gave way to old age
everything seems like a moist memory
the rain is gaining force
and its time I get myself coffee
as of before my body can’t stand the cold!
when my mind got foggy…… !!!
