A Summer Afternoon Rain
High from the highest ranges!
Your smile hails with respite-
Stealing this fervent memories weary band-
My empty pots brimming with cold drops-
For your grace, upon this arid land!
And my geography turns away from the world-
To fill those starry eyed halts, dots
With glimpses of your blissful creation-
I behold, rest –a strife torn pilgrim
Away from the despair, worldly lies-Shun!
I rise, to this thunderous welcome!
That shut the doors with truth,
With your benign words, to be blessed
Upon this summer rain to beat the dust-
Of all my worldly stature, freest soul with your touch!
