Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Rain Just Right

Sky was all overcast
Like cow ready to deliver
It started sending rain
Turning into a downpour.

Visibility was poor
It became pretty cool
Puddles started forming
Soon turned into floods.

Rains're always welcome
For the earth that's dry
But not of the heavy kind
That wash away some life.

There's always the right
Amount for everything
Less results in scarcity
More'll cause misery.

Please rain just
The right amount needed
Let lakes get filled
And rivers flow full.
