A glass of water

Give me a glass of water
To drink in this summer
I want nothing more than this
Give me a bowl of rice
To eat on this day.

    Great, the physical has to be fed alongside the mind and spirit. Simple truism of the basics of life.

    The poem lays out simply a request, it would have more depth and substance if you added perhaps a reason, a result, or expectation in a second stanza.

    how simply you expose the basic need of a human being...this way of expressing thoughts so straightforwardly is a virtue.....you are great...

    Very touching this humble request. How discipline the soul that truly can be satisfied with the mere basics of life. Good writing Gajanan.
