Rendezvous in the Rain

It was a beautiful monsoon evening
the breeze was enchanting
the flowers had showered
the earth was scented
the moon was rising
between the clouds
longing for you
I slipped into the oleanders
and waited in the shadows
amidst fallen flowers

I listened for footsteps
but only heard the rain
starting again
raindrops splashed
and turned into a torrent
the cruel deluge
heartless and inhumane
washed away my reverie
of a rendezvous in the rain
