A Happy Moment in the Rain

by Biljana Petrova
(Skopje, Macedonia)

close my eyes. I forget.
Raindrops wash me away into oblivion.
I take a deep breath and exhale all regrets.
Ready for the blessing, for the liberating rain…
And there it goes again..beautiful clouds
Cool drops sparkling in the air..
Are they falling down or am I flying
to meet them there
in the reign of clouds
Where everything is so simple, so beautiful
So silent, so potent, so easy to take..
I take it all in..
Eyes closed..against the world..
With the rain, to take away the pain
the needless needles piercing me for days
On end..it’s over, it’s over and it’s gone..
And I will dance again
I will dream of the stars again
I will fly, I will laugh, I will cry
Across the dimensions
Across the milky way…

In another world
Where you run your fingers
through my wet hair
where you take me in your arms
and we laugh over the pouring rain
whirling together
choosing every step
to coincide with the puddles on the street
when our eyes meet..
And this rainy moment creates a memory
for me to cherish, for you to keep.

Then I open my eyes and I remember..
Luckily the rain won’t give me away.

A lovely job, the words and rhythms echoed the rain, and the twist at the end was so moving. Well written and well done. Gay
