Refocused and Renewed – A Poem


The rain is still falling

And it’s been dark all day.

Now, night has come

And the house is quiet . . .

As I settle down for rest,

I hear the music!

Each drop of water plays its own note

As it slips from the sky

And joins in the puddle dance.

Lifting the blinds, I look out

And find that the darkness is not complete

For the moon light

Reflects in each tiny dancing droplet

And all is a glitter!

I hid from the darkness I thought was there

And all along I was missing out

On taking joy in the amazing brightness!
