On Rains

Fallen leaves pulverized by relentless rains

Sheer ferocity reflects in their dedicated strike

Soft petals of flowers tremble with intense agony

Exhausted from carrying too much burden 

There is no soul outside to save the flowers 

Leaves cling to the darkened shades of branches 

Bowing down in prayer till the storms pass

This strife of nature raises unknown sentiments

Without the rains the Earth will bear a forlorn look

Nature sacrifices to let the crucible overflow with life

Life will be birthed and filled with abundance

Till then, listen to the heartbeat of rains

Rhythm and song of rains inundate the poet’s world©
