Last Time When it Rained


Last time when it rained I was standing

watching the Mediterranean Sea change its colour

I distinctly remember how quickly it happened

From deep azure it went to light turquoise

There were none on Promenade des Anglais

Soaked in tender drops

The blue chairs were empty

They looked lonely

Drenched with memories of pouring rain

I went and had coffee

Looking at strange faces.

As I sit here now

Facing the window

Raindrops caressed by wind kiss my cheeks

Fallen leaves are swept away

Smell of the earth rises from the ground

Bringing back what I thought was a dead sin

And now my heart lingers

through an unknown desolate street

Searching for something lost

Not knowing what it is
