Great imagery, perfectly worked and really hit a spot where i have been many times. Good work and extremely well observed
you've captured a moment with feeling and writ with simplicity in that wit that sees the world in a raindrop
Stunning! I've always loved the pattern of raindrops against the window screens. It would take a poet to even think about writing something like this, wouldn't it? :-)
I spend a lot of time watching the rain through window screens--this gives me another perspective. Thanks.
thanks for this, poet.
Beautiful imagery and wonderfully succinct. Excellence in brevity.
This is very very good. Amazing imagery.
wouldn't they bleed diagonally first?
no they land then bleed usually at an angle
I have nothing much to say about the poem in general.
However line 9 made me think..
If “populate” is derived from the Latin word populus and means the people, then surely line 9 should have read inhabit or inhabited.
I like this a lot. Not totally sure about the title. It doesn't conjure up anything in particular for me. I think "populated" makes perfect sense but it's not the most poetic word - don't know what might capture the sense you're after with a little more beauty. On the other hand, it pulled me up a little and stopped this slipping in to triteness.
It could be that line ten is also wrong, especially to those to whom populated does not make prefect sense.
One cannot populate that which is thrown back by reflection; it is a contradiction in terms.
i agree with you Mor but the poem is about perception which is not entirely rational or non rational.
i saw mor trying to populate himself in the stall next to george michael.
Yes. I wish it would rain tonight...
A great description of the barrier between introspective thoughts and the future...
i can even feel this poem
made me wet
still love it
