December Rain

December Rain
(for Edith L. Tiempo)


A sudden downpour
drenches the City, washing it clean
of sin and residual memory,
quenching its thirst
for water and renewal.

Likewise, my parched soul
craves for benediction, the surge
and splurge of inner rain
watering the landscape of the heart,
a new Self flowering.


-Ralph Semino Galán
