Rain and Us

Last night it rained,
Incessantly, but without hope
For this was not
The time of the year,
Only the season of prayer
From a million parched lips.
Murmurs coalescing 
Into clouds, precipitating
In the rain dust
Waiting for a miracle of sorts.

Last night it rained,
The street lights got drenched
Withdrawing into themselves,
With silent prayers 
On the rims
Waiting for a Buddha to appear.
But the flowers bloomed
To welcome the coolness
Ignoring the evanescence,
The uncertainty 
Of the passing moments. 

Now, in the cool, quiet morning,
When I walk among
The riot of colors, I know 
The flowers
Did the right thing
When it rained last night.
