Cloudbursts: Master, was I ever lush?

A deluge, before creation you were!
A surge, you have been!
An overflow, you are!
An undertow, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word cloudbursts
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for tempests

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Waka
Just like the deluges,
they're usually current.
Neither dry nor dull!
To stream, volley, brook or drift.
The flowing in of the tide.

Cloudbursts

Cloudbursts are several ruins.
Honestly, are they?

Can I show a rhyme, disclosed so crowds might see
Newly pleasing sentences, vividly nurturing, and oh how provided free?
Decays or losses feel all too absolute. But is crashes?
Downpours, racks? - or failures, debacles? Damn! I excluded trashes!
I reckon rainfalls and otherwise collapses, but plainly ought I
- state concepts so - innuendos drafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Moonfalls,
She wanted a word for downfalls.
      Some red dollar days?
      But then thought decays!
That literate girl from Moonfalls.
