Storm Haiku

The clouds have returned
With the promise of more rain
Birds sing from afar

Thunder cracks the mind
Wide open to the heavens
No salvation here

The torrential rain
Falls through present awareness
Into this no-thing

This mind is the rain
Falling in its own knowing
Eternal downpour

Rain floods awareness
Barriers utterly breached
In a surge of sound

Rain is splattering
Between the door's metal mesh
Calling out, "Awake!"

The rainstorm passes
Distant thunder fading out
Dogs now relaxing

Sun replaces rain
Ants swarm the corpse of a worm
Such transiency!

Peace is an absence
Of wind-battered mind moments
August rains reprieve
