Rain Dance

Bright candlelight flickers - reflects in the pane
As shimmering droplets shine wetly outside;
I sit in soft shadows and sing with the rain,
Content to be swirled within colors of night.

A dark elfin drummer begins a wild beat -
Wet droplets and melody surge into one -
Fantastical rhythms take hold of my feet -
Bright candlelight flickers - reflects in the pane;

And all is not quite as the moment before,
For trees near the window are waving their arms.
The spirits of Faery have stepped through my door
As shimmering droplets shine wetly outside.

Content to be swirled within colors of night,
I dance with soft shadows and sing with the rain;
Surrounded by magick and bright candlelight,
A flickering moment is captured in time.
