Poems and Poetry

Postcard from Nepal | A Poem by Bruce Louis Dodson

In Kathmandu
Rain falls like Shiva’s tears
Great darkened clouds
Come roiling onto jagged peaks
Above the valley
Thunder echoes
Warm rain
Lightning scatters monkeys
Who take shelter in the wooden eves above a temple
As umbrellas blossom in the marketplace below.
Monsoon.
