Instant Answer

Instant answer


Cute and sweet ten year old girl
Gently leaned over the fence;
Gently winked her eyes and
Fell into a mood of trance.

A few questions raised in her mind-
One by one aroused her curiosity.
Why does smoke come out in the air?
Smoke comes out to ensue fire:
An instant answer came to her mind.

Why do clouds move in the sky?
Clouds move to shower rain:
Another instant answer caught her mind.

Why do rivers flow on the land?
Rivers flow to fetch water for all:
Next answer came to her mind.

Why do peacocks dance at the sight of rain?
Peacocks dance to spread joy to all:
An instant answer flew to her mind.

Why do creepers climb on trees?
Creepers climb on trees for not falling down:
A quick answer hovered her mind.

Why do plants and trees bloom?
Plants spread flowers to give fruits:
Still a vivid answer calmed her mind.
