To sleep

I lay and listen to rain
Drop by drop.
Uncounted in the darkness
One by one.

Weeping on the window pane
Drop by drop.
Running to rivulets egress
One by one.

And I hush to drowsy reign
Drop by drop.
Drawn to the shush of less
One by one.

Drop by drop
One by one.

Until none.

Very lulling...I especially liked the line: 'Drawn to the shush of less'.
Excellent poem (as usual)

Superb... and sweet.:

Satiate, Masters and Isis,
Thank you so much for the praise, this is a strange poem even to me. It seemed to have a hypnotic quality about it. I only posted it to see what others thought. Thank you all again.
