Kranthi Pothineni

Ripe - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

Is wind changing direction?
Is it blowing against wish?
Is it crushing all dreams?
Is it making life very hard?
Then pal, sing its good time

Is cloud bringing dark roof?
Is it covering with gloom?
Are the stars moving away?
Is light rays getting pale?
Then pal, dance its great move

Is thunder screaming badly?
Is it making hard to sleep?
Or lighting burned a scar?
Is it firing loud and hard?
Then pal, play the music loud

Is rain breaking the shield?
Is everything washed away?
Is it lancing hard all over?
Is it pouring without rest?
Then pal, its time to celebrate

Pal, that wind is true friend
That cloud makes you proud
The thunder will show wonder
Lighting will teach you fighting
Finally rain wets a grain to grow

    Love the poem. Thanks for inviting me to share. The last verse sums up adequately the entire poem. No one loves the lightening, clouds, wind, thunder, rain and all the storms that come into our lives. But it is these stormy 'trials' that cause one's life to mature. And if endured (not allowing oneself to be destroyed by them) - they (our obstacles) will make us to become only better and stronger individuals. Thanks for a great poem. (Report) Reply
