The Child And Rain Poem by Pranab K Chakraborty

The Child And Rain

Rating: 5.0

One day when a child
tried to show me rain
falling from the sky
became confused

no cloud I saw there
no drizzling
no drop of falling

where then he found
such falling

asked myself many times before sleep
made query within with regular term
one day felt the charm of raining
my soul thundering furious to crack
clouds everywhere

rain began slowly to get me wet
a sense of expansion
a broader feelings of friendship
with nature

began to fall
overwhelmed my conscious
I got wet
rain everywhere

believe I learned from the child...

A nice poem with layers of feeling, and its circling return to the beginning of childhood.

Yes, Pranab, we can learn many things from the children. So often, they are perceptive in ways that we are not. Oh the faith of a child. PS: In reference to my poem ‘A Sad Comedian, ’ thanks for your kind comments. I’ve just learned that it was recently featured as Poem of the Day.
