A Natural Birthday Party - Poem by Pradeep Dhavakumar

Softly burning sodium Lights,
ornately planted on muddy Streets
appeared like Candles on a Cake
and I wondered if
nature too celebrated birthdays.

Then a Storm barged in,
and shut the candles' eye;
Lightning slovenly sliced the cake,
Thunder vibrated its vocal cord,
Rooftops all applauded in kind
and the Wind hand-fed the slices
to every open-mouthed
window and door.
