Sharp light, from a solitary lamppost
cuts through the haze, to dispel itself upon crystal coated pavement
Residue, of the once presiding storm.
Shadow battles shine upon crumbling brickwork,
Succumbing finally to the limp glow from above
And receding into the safety of deeper crevice
Droplets line up single file,
Eager to merge with siblings and leap from eves and cills,
While trees gather,silently and disperse the storms bounty from their boughs.
Humidity, broken by a still chill
Encompasses all in it's stillness, dampening accustomed conversations of the nocturnal
Muting all but the gentle rush of water through grate
Intrigued and with gathered interest,
Stars peek through softened windows of nimbi, at the serenity cast in rainfall,
desperate to add their glimmer to the scene below.
The calm beyond the storm
