Freshman - 872 Points (Sept.06,1950 / Sri Lanka)

On A Rainy Day - Poem by Ponniah Ganeshan

Blades of all grasses, petals of plants and seeds
Came out of their hidden points from
every nook and corners
With their messages
On a day of heavy rain
When the earth relieved of a long drought.

Songs flow over in a language
Devoid of any words
As drops of rain
Falling from the darkened clouds
Over the roof
Over the trees.
The lady, the mango tree in the premises
Tired of delivering so many sweet fruits
Dries up her hair leaves
With the towel of breeze that comes
Then and there.

Dead leaves and papers discarded
Rush as armies of soldiers
Having resurrected with the flood
Towards their destination
In no time to halt
In no time to speak
With an emergency.

Enjoying all these scenario
I have suddenly become a child
Running up, holding a boat made of paper
To launch it on the water
I looked my face at the mirror and the grey hair appearing
Ridiculed at me
With the reasons only known to me.
