Rain Talk2 mins 322 2 mins 322
I was riding on my bike to my office
With dreary daily dullness;
Yet, happened to notice a drama in the sky -
Sun was so bright and suddenly dark cloud hid the light!
As I tuned my hypersensitive senses on,
I heard them speaking in a meeting
It was a round-table conference (earth is the table)
Between the sun and the ocean
Clouds and rays were also presented -
Sun: I want them to be burnt;
I want them to be dead without water.
Clouds: No mom sends us to keep you calm.
Rays: Why should we be calm?
Sun: You have given enough chances;
You have the heart of a mom,
As you carry
From harmless to harmful,
From charmless to charming,
From formless to numerous forms,
Of lives in your womb...
Yet mankind has become a threat to you:
They damaged even the timeless turtles
- One of your favourite children -
You hold deep and special for centuries...
Yet you are too generous!
Ocean: I understand you are upset
And you can never relate to my decisions,
As you are made of totally different stuff;
I have seen better human beings
Who cleans up the mess of their kind;
Though they are very less in numbers
They love you and me equally.
So I am trying to help them
And give a few more chances for their sake!
Let my children do the job
Tuck yourself and take rest for a while
Last time our talk ended up on a rough note
In anger, I swept off a few lands
Sabotaged their livelihoods!
Let’s not argue any further...
Suddenly, I felt drizzles on me
I veered my bike towards the office
As the sky completely turns gloomy
Just after I entered the office
It was pouring for an hour...
