‘It’s raining’

By Kuro Seijaku Published about a year ago 1 min read

Drip drop drip drop

The trickling mizu drops

Cool air dispel the hot

Undone as though life forgot.

Trees flowing in kaze

Pay respect arigato kami

For you keep the balance

While kings long for palace

I long for the glades

The meadows most evade.

One day things will decay

As everything falls apart

The kokoro that beats

Cannot save you from dark.

The unknown seems to eat

That of which we see.

Where are we to be

When the end is but a dream?

Where does the rain start?

When clouds never seem to end?

If I run until I can’t

I can still, and yet pretend.

Hoshizora alight the sky

The young do question why

And so to them abide

With stories and tales of why.

Or how, who, what, and where

Is the one who’s lead our stare?

You may call this divine

Yet may soon see in time.

For what they seek is them,

And you may seek the same.

Now you have forgotten

But you are not to blame.

For khronos has lead astray

The focus of younger days

If you’re to believe you’re distracted

That’s you being in your way.

Do not fall, not at all

Don’t you know you were once a star?

You may still, if you will,

Get to see just where you are…
