I write and publish my poetry first on Instagram. Then on Sundays, I post the poem that received most likes or comments here on my blog. Below is my most popular Instagram poem this week, “That Spray of Raindrops”.
“Look,” she starts to say. “Look at that spray of raindrops on that pink petal there, the way it holds the sun...” and then recalls that he, the only one who ever saw such things the same, will never see such things with her again. He’s gone. And nothing for it now but hold in place while outraged heart again beats out its beats of pain. He’s gone. He’s gone. To gaze, as he would have gazed, and there remain, until the drops of rain and the petals glistening in the sun can be felt again as one, and she can go on.
