A Raindrop
by Prof. Dr. Anil K. Prasad
Bookmark and Share
 
One late afternoon
When I was
On my usual stroll 
Through        
The comfortably  
Crowded streets of Ibb*,
The Green Governorate:
 
A raindrop
Randomly fell
On my forehead
And it was a surprise
To see the sky  
Without a fleck of cloud!                                                               
 
“Is it going to rain?”
“I don’t think so,” said she
Who has always
Been walking
Beside me.
 
Then what was that?
 
Today I travel back
To know what was that
That day walking
Down the track
I had a feeling
Of displeasure.
 
An infinitesimal globe
Of life: a raindrop
Fell on my forehead
And conveyed quietly
A message of hope
 
Caressing me
To go ahead and heed
The bell
That marks the end
But as well
Of the start
Of a new period…
 
Note:* Ibb, the Green Governorate, the Republic of Yemen
