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!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
