Theme: Agony

Rain of Woe

Standing alone in the rain
The downpour splashing like
Small pebbles; scattering
Channels of water sneaking down
Like the crawling of worms
An intermittent breeze making
A casual visit as if to ensure that
Everything is in order and
The rain ceasing suddenly as if
By an unknown command

Everything around standing
Soaked, drenched, shivering
And silent: everything around
Seems to have slipped into a
Meditation; an occasional
Sway of a branch sending down
Cascades of water as if dropping
Down a basketful of pearls

Standing aloof in the rain
Like a statue in meditation
Water dripping down mixing
With the tears that flow down
The fire burning inside could be
Neither diminished nor extinguished
And dampness spreading all around
