Summer Rain – a troiku

after the summer heat
raindrops kissing my naked body
Ah! that coolness                                           


after the summer heat
longs days in vanishing shade
a hopeful cloud

raindrops kissing my naked body
replacing dust and sweat
quenching deep thirst

Ah! That coolness
filling up empty fountains
bare feet in puddles
