A Rain Washed Evening Golden silver droplets lining up the parapet wall Hurrying to the edge to see who is the first to fall An evening so beautiful, clear and bright As though some one has just cleaned for a better sight Golden rays of sun piercing through the clouds Contouring everything it touches with shiny sparkling folds. Letting out a vision so vivid and clear, Mother nature comes out after a bath so pure. The gentle cool breeze, swaying the trees Making the leaves to giggle and sprinkle the water beads. Birds are all around, enjoying the dazzling sun Some singing, some preening, but sure, all are having fun. Children are out on the clean washed streets, Running around and over the puddles left by the rainy treats. What a joy to walk down the lane enjoying the joyful screams Of children so happy to be out in the sparkling serene streets. Blissful light pouring out of the golden cup midst the fluffy clouds Falling on my face rendering a mild warmth in the cool breeze The evening so pure, vibrant and crystal clear Giving every one hopes for a night full of gleam and cheer.
