sounds...


mouse is clicking;
clock is ticking....
CPU is humming;
movie is downloading..
screen is flickering;
birds are singing....
fan is swooshing;
chimes are chiming....
wind is blowing;
leaves are rustling....
children are laughing;
elders are gossiping....

i am cycling!
clouds are thundering....
rain is falling;
ground is smiling....

rain is falling hard;
urging me to pedal hard...
from under the cap i see;
the sky is lighting my way...
the wind is blowing me away;
and setting me free....

i leave the handlebar;
and look at the sky,
feel the rain falling on my face,
while i hear someone honking for his way.....
cursing under breath,i let him pass by,
realizing its a girl and not a guy......
so as the 'him' turned out to be a 'her'
i let my gaze fall upon her...
as i saw that pretty face,
time seemed to have slowed its pace....
she slowed her kinny,
i did not,don't know why???
seeing rain trickle down her cheek...
so beautiful she seemed,
wanted to kiss that rain drop on that cheek...
i was still pedalling,
the bike hit the fence hard...
i gained my senses,but it was too late,
i was already flying over my head.....

my back made the first contact
made me think of 'Houston,the eagle has landed'....
i winced there in pain
not knowing what i was to gain...
closed my eyes,cursing myself
opened my eyes to find that damsel,herself
she asked,"are you okay?"
still groggy,closed my eyes again...
she touched my hand,tried to lift me;
up on my two feet,still felt queasy....
so close felt like an angel standing next to me,
her eyes staring at me...
she started to leave,
not knowing she had her hand clutched on me...
i managed a thanks ,words failed me yet again
and it was pouring again....

getting soaked again

i realized what got me into this tumble,
moved with a sprinters agility
and caught hold of her,
brought my palm close to her face,
let that rain drop fall from her face
and into my palms face....

she giggled, i smiled,
she began to leave,
words failed me again....
i saw her leave and then opened my palm,
and kissed the rain drop that kissed her cheek...

sat there on the fence,
letting the rain fall on me
closed my eyes
n thought of her face n voice...
