aros #30





Working on a full Saturday, and then going back on an emergency call in the middle of the night leaves me with no mood to write anything, so there's no 29th stone. :)

And the rain that is falling since last night inspires this 30th stone.

stoic

how long have the pigeons
huddled on the wet ledge
from the incessant rain
that has been falling
since dawn?
and
i
in my warm room
still feel a chill when i see
them shake their feathers ever
so slightly when an angry rush of wind
howl across this rain-lashed apartment block.
