Anticipation and Acceptance


A small drop fell down hesitantly

looking for acceptance

and the reaction was intense

as hot sand coiled together

The sea halted its waves for a second

to listen to the distant thunder

Busy passers stopped midway

only to send up a soft prayer

and a girl jumped up in glee

preparing to dance with the heavy rainfall

Just a Drop of Water

The parched land

The dried grass

And withered young leaves

Plead for a drop of rain


The thirsty bird looks up

And squeaks weakly

As the unwanted sun

Stares back, helpless


The flower’s upturned face

And open mouth

Long to taste

A drop of sweet water

Unrelenting Rain

The cold rain

Wakes the slumbering tree

And mighty birds flee

With noisy clamour

As people rush for shelter

Leaving tiny plants

To shiver the wrath of shower

The furious and unrelenting rain

Pours over every life, every structure

And withdraws in unexpected haste

Is it overcome by fatigue?

Or perhaps by sympathy?

As it waits for yet another day

To unleash its fury
