It Rained

Lost in a monsoon torrent

I see light

Tremulous on trembling leaves

And wet scented earth

Watching a raindrop prism


Splashing birds in puddles

And tender tendrils

Bursting from cocoon seeds

Into life…..

….. on soggy banks

where waters raged

In a turmultons flood

And brown, bouncing babes

were swept away,

And the beggar’s empty bowl

was shattered

Against a pot of shining brass

In a swirling torrent

My children play

with paper boats

Uncaring of the Dead.
