Transient gallery

It rained so hard
it woke me from my dreams
battering beating on the roof
there's a storm outside it seems.

Walking past the puddles
whilst glancing at the sky
Prussian blue above
sun shining from on high.

Pictures in the puddles
nowhere imperfection
immaculately clear
every puddle holds reflection.

Images are fleeting
so natural to see
clouds traverse quite quickly
a bird, some grass, a tree.

The water is so transient,
sunshine slowly dries
images evaporate
empty mirrors for your eyes.

Observant appreciate
many just pass near
gallery is empty
pictures gone from here.

Yvonne said...

I feel the rhyme, rhythm and use of alliteration work well because they enhance the rain. Your idea of pictures in a gallery is also good...I particulary like the lines..."Pictures in the puddles...holds reflection" and " empty mirrors for your eyes" Well done!

Yvonne: Another one that you like I am so pleased. Thanks for your comments.
