Rain Days

and then
the rains came
and went by.

Those twelve sodden days
left out to dry
at the window sill.

and yet,

I cannot get the smell
of yesterday out of their folds.

12 sodden days might have given you a bad cold-temporary loss of smelling power!

Nice twist on 'smell' Sunil,

"I cannot get the smell
of yesterday out of their folds."

A coincidence, even I just put one up on smell today!

I loved the metaphor after 12 sodden days. I can almost hear a sigh in those words.
