Gita Ashok


The Rain - Poem by Gita Ashok

Drops of liquid gold
fall gently on the arid earth
bringing forth promises
of giving solace to
many a parched soul.

May be there will be
no more water woes
or countless dark hours
because of power failure.

May be there will be
a respite from the
sky-rocketing prices
of essential commodities.

Truly the Almighty
has not given up on mankind!
Why else would He send
rain from the Heavens above
on a day when there’s
almost a heat wave?

    HE who gives takes back...We who receive get what He gives…
    Rain here is the poetic tool used to mould the theme of the poem- the benevolence of the Almighty

    Agreed the Almighty has not given up on mankind....how can he leave his children

    But his children are being so ungrateful that they have given up the very cause for which he died on the cross

    liked these lines. we poets always land in the hands of the Almighty. somehow we find consolation and comfort there. you brought this point at the end in your fine poem. thank you for sharing.
