The Rain....

Dark clouds drifting

Wind howling

The rain falls

My thoughts drift from the comfort of the cats in my apartment

The rain will quench the thirst of many community cats

Diluting the poisons that have been added to the stagnant water

The rain will flush away the kittens hidng in the small drains

The meowing drowns in the swirling water

The cats that fell into the steep monsoon drains

Rush in vain against the raising tide of water

Cats hiding beneath cars

Cats crouching under concrete seats in the void decks

At the mercy of the human traffic

Life is like that




What then

Is the mystery of existence?
