raindrops fall
raindrops speak
against large, firm
champa leaves

sharp tinkles
strike polished porch tiles
soft murmurs
disappear in weeds

thunder rolls
far away


an enormous lion
made of clouds
woken from slumber
in a corner of night sky
more sleepy
than fierce
growling softly
to please
its audience of stars

raindrops embrace
and melt into ground,
grass and leaves

each union a new word
in the story
the rain tells the earth
