the rain
it comes down
in so many ways
straight, slanted,
hurried
piercing noon
that delights
eyes and heart

or so slowly, lazily
it drizzles
ever so slowly
- an old man trudging
through the lane -
throughout morn
until the pool is full

full with my impatience
to visit next door friend
for a round of football

rain April rain
it jumps in the garden
crystal upon crystal
to and fro
to and fro
down the big yam leaves the rain
it comes down
in so many ways
straight, slanted,
hurried
piercing noon
that delights
eyes and heart

or so slowly, lazily
it drizzles
ever so slowly
- an old man trudging
through the lane -
throughout morn
until the pool is full

full with my impatience
to visit next door friend
for a round of football

rain April rain
it jumps in the garden
crystal upon crystal
to and fro
to and fro
down the big yam leaves

In other news, Ask Me For Drabbles is still open - comment here or on the original post.
I finally got around to doing one of these again. In light of Christmas/Midwinter/Wintereenmas/Equivalent festival, I'm offering drabbles as gifts. (Although I cannot be held responsible if a drabble turns into a monstrous page-eating fic or equivalent.)

Leave your requests in the comments, and I'll do a post on 25th December with all of them. I'll keep it open until around the 23rd, which gives you twelve days. (Heh, Twelve Days of Drabbles.)

Available fandoms:

  • Lord of the Rings
  • The Silmarillion
  • Firefly/Serenity
  • Doctor Who
  • Discworld
  • Harry Potter

    And happy ficcing to all of you. :D
Drabble post: take 2. Drabbles as requested at this post (quite a while ago...) but better late than never, yes?










Shall I do it again? I think I'll wait until the holidays roll around, but yes.
Who wants drabbles? I feel 'all revved up with no place to go' in terms of writing, right now - I want to do it, but I'm a bit vague as to what I'd actually write... anyway, comment with a drabble request for me, if you please. That way, I get to exercise my writing muscles, and you get drabbles. Everybody wins!

Available fandoms:

- The Lord of the Rings
- The Silmarillion/Unfinished Tales/Children of Hurin
- Harry Potter
- Discworld
- Firefly/Serenity
- Doctor Who - but I've only seen the episodes up to 'Human Nature' in series three, so please, no spoilers.

Happy ficcing!
