The skies split open; proceed to pour down

optimistic downpour: rain, the tiny splatters

straining to sustain;

a soaking, repetitive chorus

washes away the untiring dust,

rinses the determined grit off the insane,

abruptly clears away the mundane.


The heavens’ emotions drench humanity;

dejections dissipate

and melancholies melt.

Worries withdraw

and magic materialises…


Leaving the awed observers,

the elated participants and the shrewd decision-makers


bright-beaming, simply sparkling.


Fresh… finally flawless.medium_3330862016
