May 8,1971 - Mumbai

oh rain

Slashing rains reaped from nowhere,
like a hurricane,
A school child, went off wild, in tears,
looking for ma, searching for pa,
nowhere to be seen, was his grandma,

Afraid, as lightening struck,
and clouds thundered,
the boy seems to wonder,
will the rainy clouds surrender?
ah, as though they heard, the rains stood,

the rainbow loomed on the sky,
and the birds wished to fly,
the flowers danced with joy,
the child laughed with happiness,
but his heart weeped with sorrowfulness,
looking for ma, searching for pa.
