A tribute to the magic called: Rain

Rain

A liquefied slice of heaven fell on a rose petal one day

It toggled, turned, danced and swayed

As it moved, it shone different shades of red and purple hue

The shades changed as it made its way gliding down the velvety rue

Then another drop of diamond fell gently on the red carpet as it exuded sweet perfume

That one too made its way to…
