As the drops of rain poured in
The Sky Roared and the windows clanged
The shutters stuttered
The lights dimmed on and off
Amid the scare and cloudy dark,
Two hopeful eyes smiled in respite
As if a child seeing his first rain!
The two eyes shone bright
There was joy, there was delight.
They open and shut gradually,
As the droplets sprayed.
Age might have wrinkled the lids
But the hopes are fresh
And dreams intact!
Those eyes have seen a lot in time
From Happiness to pain,
Been through Glee and Vain,
And yet they smiled in simplicity –
The life’s only wisdom!
It’s the joy of embracing the rains
After seasons of hard work.
Sitting at the porch
There they saw through the spectacle of time
The beauty of life pouring on them!
