August RainA Poem by Tom Sagramola
Inspired by rain. Inspiration is omnipresent.
Imagine taking a long, forlorn sunday walk
in the forest on a gloomy afternoon
as pouring rain catches you by surprise.
Imagine seeking shelter under the nearest birch tree
as the sky darkens and you cannot help
but savour the odour of wet soil
and the orchestra of raindrops, falling on the leaves.
Imagine nostalgia washing over you,
taking you back to the time when you were young,
when life was easy, innocent and without consequences.
That is when you'd realize, that beauty is ever-present
even in the most inconspicuous things in life.
