If It Rains Fire - Poem by Allama Prabhu

If it rains fire
you have to be as the water;

if it is a deluge of water
you have to be as the wind;

if it is the Great Flood,
you have to be as the sky;

and if it is the Very Last Flood of all the worlds,
you have to give up self

and become the Lord.

[English version by A. K. Ramanujan
Original Language Kannada]
