Incessant raindrops

incessant rain drops
in my courtyard
falling on memories
with the rhythm
of old melodies
.
buried skeletons rise
dancing in tottering steps
dragging the spirit away
from the rain
and its wetness
.
to waltz away the night
locked in the arms of time
.
while
mind and body
sit and watch
the rain and the dance
from the threshold
.

Hmmm... re your friend's question-tears of sorrow or pearls of wisdom? Please answer that one :-)

mayz/geeta: the jury is still out on that one :)

when pearls become tears, umbrellas come out :)))
