After Rain [Poem]

The first sunshine after rain is a newborn child,

Emerging from the womb of the earth,
Tears streaming down its cheeks,
Eyes shining with rebirth.

Enshrouded in the arms of the clouds,
It peers out over the world,
All of its rays resounding.

In the reflection of miniature pools,
Cast amid the departing raindrops,
The sunshine begins to unspool.

In its own eyes, the newborn sun burns ever wild.
