White Clouds - Poem by Ayyappa Paniker

White clouds may never rain!
They only float across the sky lazily!
Dark clouds rain giving wetness to the ground
Thunder thrills the earth.
Lightning lights up the sky
The sea greets dark clouds with folded arms.
When those pure white balls of cotton
skim across the blue sky
Its a lovely sight we see!
Makes you stand and stare.
Where else would you find such beauty in whiteness?
