Unexpected Downpour

Updated on September 13, 2014

It had been a day torrid

And the air too heavy to breathe.

With the advancement of the day,

Overcast grew the Sky.

Thunder reverberated,

Across the Firmament at noon,

While lightning rent asunder

The breast of Heaven.

They brought the good news,

That forthcoming drops of rain

Would bring consolation again.

Soon it began to rain,

With pellets of ice,

Falling down hard

On grassy plain.

The trees chortled with glee,

At the manna dropped

From Heaven above.

Getting a sigh of relief,

The animals sought refuge

Under canopies leafy.

With a long and tearful gaze,

Look I at the rain fall,

Hoping my tear drops

Had the same power of consolation

As the falling drops of rain.

My tears are not because of

Any motive selfish,

But I cried my heart out

For the suffering humanity.
