Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Rain
CheBourdain7

The comforting
 1
splashing sounds
 2
of water
 3
falling
 4
down the roof
 5
suddenly
 6
becomes
 7
the main instrument
 8
to be heard
 9
in our dazed,
 10
introspective
 11
solitude.
 12
 
 
Even
 13
the deepest
 14
of our worries
 15
and concerns
 16
becomes numb
 17
and halted.
 18
Tiny drops
 19
of rain
 20
giving us
 21
flashbacks
 22
of our youths,
 23
to which
 24
we were
 25
wild
 26
free
 27
and nonchalant.
 28
Bringing us
 29
to our puppy love
 30
days
 31
when
 32
we did not
 33
judge
 34
the future nor the past
 35
but was just
 36
all in all
 37
in
 38
the moment.
