by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

you use to pour so much water
for the gods
from your Urna,
that a part of it
falls on Earth
as healthy rains --
guarantees for life.

with stars like Sadachbia
(the Lucky Star of Hidden Things)
or Sadalsuud
(the Luckiest of the Lucky),
you are a constellation of fortune.

Today I was wetted
by a torrential rain.

Lucky me!
