Never mind

Here are a couple of left handed definitions.

Matter: never mind.
Mind: no matter.

Jokes aside, here is a poem:

Of times once and now

a diamond-like drop
hanging precariously on
darkling leaf, debating the question

each sound each sight
a trigger for a medley of remembrances
that scramble into cacophony

each rumbling of thunder
a reminder of things
like this rain-drenched evening
I’d rather pass by.

Could with more condensing, Lali.
Try it as a haiku.

Ash- What's this? Everybody wants me to try haikus. I am that longwinded? ;)

I like it m'lady. And why do they want condensing, it should be longer, more evocations.
