Sadder Than Anything

Sadder Than Anything

A Poem by Dah

An umbrella moves

through the rain

and in between each drop

emptiness

 

Morning’s injured light

far from the sun

trips over rooftops

into the wind’s mouth

passing over my eyes

 

I hear footsteps

alone on the sidewalk

alone in the rain

only to stop and wait

for a dream or a green light

 

From the sidelines

a burly boom

of far-off thunder

Time passes even darker

 

Raindrops tangle in my hair

raindrops sadder than anything

Neruda has written

Nice poem. I like the imagery in "mornings injured light far from the sun trips over rooftops". I also like the last line about Neruda.
