Sonnet - 4 - Poem by Shankaran Kutty

Battered by the forces of Nature
My Chennai, to your resilience I bow
Your people have so risen in stature
By their compassion, when nature laid them low
When the rivers rose and waters came in
Lost what for a lifetime, many did save
When the meagre resources to eat drew thin
Dear Chennai, your people still stood brave
Soon would subside nature’s rage
And overcome you would this angst
But let this herald a brand new age
Where you live with nature and not against
Remember those who defy nature
On this earth has no safe future

    You have succinctly described in this poem the unprecedented situation in Chennai caused by heavy rains, the courage of people and their resilience. But the message is bold and clear.
    Remember those who defy nature
    On this earth has no safe future
