May rain

First rain of this summer
Soaked earth and leaves and the green smiles
Dark clouds,
fading light and hope

It rained
before the last drop evaporated
before the last hope disappeared
last ray of life went into darkness

It rained
settling the dust
caressing the lonely soul

Rain drops came
touching and flowing through the naked skin
nobody ever could touch

It rained
quintessential May rain

Very well written, coming from a heart that has known pain. :"It rained, settling the dust, caressing the lonely soul" : boro bhalo. Rain does cleanse our soul, brings down our psyche..
