Oksanen, Reijo

Early Morning in May

The warm rain
hit the pavement
jumping from joy
and the sun rose high
drying the wet ground
when I came around the corner
in bright sunlight
raindrops glittering
here and there

In the park
the whole scene
in front of my eyes
and in the middle of it
I am watching it
like a stranger
from another planet
would perhaps look
at life here on earth
