soft rain

soft rain
a cloud so heavy
it fell to earth
enveloping us
in vapour
and the tall meadow grass
is bowed
beneath a burden
of jewelled droplets
and the hills
fade out
blurred green
under the
soft rain

cave

we lurk
in our cave
all manner of
technology here
and yet
beneath it all
a primitive instinct
remains
to hunker down
close curtains
block out
the rain
and huddle
together
for sweet warmth
