Blessed Rain


We've been told the rain in Spain
In that tragic Covid ridden Iberia
Usually'd fall mainly on the plain
But what of our tropical Malaysia?



The rain goes dom dam dom dam
Beating rat-tat-tat on my zinc roof
Nature's musical singing telegram
Our friendly hujan, not at all aloof


Saying to me As-salāmu ʿalaykum
As I smell it sweet moist freshness

Sitting on the veranda of my home
Magically feeling tranquil calmness


Soon the rain will leave me alone
In idyllic and stoic contemplation
Meditating on my Nirvanic throne
& cherishing 
Nature's benediction
