righteous rain

righteous rain beats against my window
I've slept through it most often
stayed inside so as not to get wet
waiting, waiting for sun and birdsong

righteous rain will disperse food mountains
wash away blood in the streets in a war-torn obscure African state
will carry the murdered Armenian editor down the river to the open seas
to a better place

righteous rain will flood every personal desert
causing whole villages to be built
industries to arise
and engendered deep contemplations under the clear night sky.
