Rain Talk

2 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...
