Unfulfilled dream

As each drop fell into the heart of earth

I watched silently

admiring the silver strings from heaven.

My mind longed to get drenched

Something held me back

fear or pessimist mind unwilling to change

I gazed and gazed…

until I realized

I was losing…

The courage my mind  gathered gone vain

The rain had already ceased

Time had flapped its wings

Before I could reach out my hands.
