Grey and tumbling. The transforming skies
Rampaging towards a lone bird that flies
Who daringly darts, it's fast curling rath
Whilst I. Sit entranced. In a hot steamy cafe.

The bustling streets press on. To and fro,
As cars dodge padestrians, row by row.
'Til a roaring of thunder claps through the air
Momentarily stopping, the commotion out there.

I, looking on. With my hands 'round a mug
In the glow of the lights. Feeling warm, dry an'snug.
Then a torrent of rain- like a million spears
Hammer down hard. Oh their scheduals are smeared.

Then the door is flung open, disturbing the norm
As the hoards of the highstreet trudge in from the storm.
The place fills up quick, like a number six bus
As puddles of wet, noisy folk make a fuss.

I finish my drink. Grab my coat and my hat
No sooner I stand. At my table, they're sat.
I squeeze through the bodies that root to the floor
Using all of my strength to get past. Reach the door.

Where out in the grey. The wind whips up my nose
The cold air bites my feet, fingers, ears and toes.
But aside from the whistling and howling that be
It's quietly peaceful. Just the elements and me.

Wonderful poem. I could feel the tension build to the crescendo of the struggle to escape the pressing crowd and get outside. I love the sense of freedom and freshness in the stormy day, appreciating that which keeps the crowds at bay. Very Happy Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven
