Quiet still

© carsten burmeister- Sydney, NSW

it rains backwards
on the reversal of the sun
tiny droplets flying up

i sing this song a little louder this time
not so that you can hear me,
but so that I will listen

and waiting for the quiet of night,
the solitude of darkness
when the world of spiders nests
can calmly rest

inspired by softness
motivated by glow
i close my eyes,
to really let the light in
