Clouds

Where are the clouds ?
which agreed to become a messenger,
and take the yearnings of Yaksha
to his wife far away

Where are the clouds ?
which bring succor
from scorching heat
breath fresh life into the earth.

The clouds which visit my house,
cannot be those,
when they pour,
my cottage trembles and leaks,
the floor becomes a pond
and everyone in the home weeps.
