Fleeting Rain - Poem by C.D. Xiang

Before that, it was blazing, torrid and feverish
Torrents of heat waves came beating upon my cadaverous soul
Like brittle bones and weakened defence
Virtually on the cusp of heat stroke
Then clouds came to form a nimbus
Obstructing the sun rays and bringing in anomalous breezes
And zephyrs, the leaves rustled
Like firewood, a precursor of relief
Better than human pleasures
As equanimity prevails
Henceforth, and the rain came plummeting down
Splash reflected to my skin
A barrage of pure water mollifies my wearied body
I looked up, and saw a majestic phenomenon
As fleeting as a miracle, an aid
But I knew it wouldn't be permanent
Because suffering prolongs
And to live is to suffer
Unless ended.
