By torchlight

By torchlight
the drift of drizzle
Is a fine feathering of magic;
A dusting of cloudflakes,
Fine as flour
And light as liquid snow.

I watch the wind made visible
By twists and turns of droplets,
Shining like planets,
Flocking like tiny birds,
As the torch illuminates
The soft, dark underbelly of the night.

Is it yours? Yes, I think so. It is charming. It’s like a description of the night I’ve seen tonight. My best regards. M.

It was one of those unexpected moments when 'miserable weather' suddenly became 'magical weather'.
