A Grain Of Rice Poem by UNNIKRISHNAN Sivasankara Menon

A Grain Of Rice

Rating: 4.7


A grain of rice
Alone
In the cooking pot
Cries, "I wish
I could get out! "

I wish I could get out
Of this cooking pot
With the entire waters
Of The Flood,
Nay, Styx drained
Enough to drown
The Universe
And the infernal fire under it.

That is wonderful. But is there any character in the Greek Myth, who was birthed by R. Styx? I do not know.
