A Cloud In The Silver Lining Poem by UNNIKRISHNAN Sivasankara Menon

A Cloud In The Silver Lining

Rating: 5.0


When you see a silver lining in the sky
just look for the dark cloud
that it encircles, ready to break
into a thunderous shower.

Weeps itself into nothingness!

Cloud that dissolves into thin air
But would flaunt a happy smile
A rainbow of smiles
hidden behind a gust of tears.
