Street Sounds, 3 October 2020

A lulling of cloudburst

pours into silence;

filling cupped leaves,

replenishing blooms

and accenting yellows.

It pours on the pavement

glistening blackness,

echoing footsteps,

washing the words

lost behind masks,

words losing melody,

with still,

hope for harmony.

Love how you move from the visual to the aural senses!

Amazing. I could smell the new life of colour and and wet pavement. It definitely wakens the imagination.

I read this several times in order to extract the meaning from every word. It's beautiful.
