Rain You Are Enough - Poem by RAJ VIKRAM

Rain you are not rain enough
You drop from the clouds
curtailed you are
transient you are, even in
your torrential avatar.
Rain you are not rain enough.

Can you be like her?
Of the nether world,
can you be like her love
that ceases only to return.
You're continuous, not continual
Rain you are not rain enough.

Rain you will be reined in.
you're of this world
with limits that are like
our lamentations,
that we swallow when
sleep gobbles us every time.

Rain you are not rain enough.
Rain is not your name,
rain that I know
and call rain know no
limits like her love that
splatters when in spate.

Rain, but don't return
to the clouds and just stay put.
In these lows, in this interlude
when her love isn't here
before her inevitable return.
Rain you're not rain enough
But for now you're enough.
