When the rain came

When the rain came
washing away summer’s dust
I hoped it would take you too
disperse that urgency of touch
down gushing leaf strewn gully.

When the rain came
I hoped we’d brave it hand in hand
hearing children’s voices
smelling again soaked walnut trees
re-integrate our memories
from semblance of disorder.

When the rain came
I knew it was you
crying at my window
repeating again and again my name
with soundless accusation:

that night I flew through florid dreams
meeting your face at every intersection
burning images from the deep
we played our game of hide and seek
retribution was the key
though the lock was lost and tarnished.

When the rain came
I prayed once more for peace
not expecting any answer .
