raspberry tea and rain

sheet lightning and raspberry tea

and rain

just like any other day or night

only it’s not

because there you are again

holding the raspberry tea

fending off the rain

with an umbrella in hand

here’s my promise

i’ll be quiet for once

go to sleep inside

your face was the sky

did lightning gash it

or merely illumine?

no matter

i’ve finished being a thunderclap

landing where i’m not wanted

ancora imparo

always

be the softest murmur

on the breeze

soothing

like sheet lightning and raspberry tea

and rain

after all

days are somehow the same
