Vijay Raybagkar

(10/03/1955 / Pune (India))

The First Rain


Running like a scared child
The first rain approaches the earth
Lying on floor like an adamant child
The rain makes a puddle
Rain sometimes thunders
Like the screaming of an unhappy child
Rain showers freshness and love
Even when the surrounding is wild
Rain appears to go to sleep
Slowly like a weeping child
Why is the rain so child-like
Is a case not yet filed
Perhaps every shower of rain is an angel
Who descends to deliver a message;
Preserve your innocence, Oh my children,
For the human life is just a passage!
