The Rain Goddess Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

The Rain Goddess

Rating: 5.0


The trees prayed to you..
For they wanted to live..
With the water sprinkled by you..
Which no one else could give.
They knew they’d surely survive

I don’t know why I needed you
But I needed you all the same
I was puzzled enough by you .
And lost to your well planned game .

You appeared in front of me
On a very cloudy day..
You smiled and seemed to ask me..
And I didn’t know what to say

You washed the dust off the roads
And gave the trees their lives
As they laughed away all tensions and loads
They knew they’d survive

I felt I was one of them..
As the tears washed my brain
I don’t know why I needed you
But I needed you..Oh! Goddess Of Rain!
