When the skies burst open,
I heaved a sigh of relief.
My heart calmed down
As if rains
are going to wash away my problems.
And leave my life bright and clean.
I put my hands out in the rain.
And wonder how a year has passed.
Rains are great time tellers.
My mind projects my life
In fast forward
And I smile.
It has stopped raining now.
But the clouds rumble in the distance,
Reminding us that they are still here.
waiting to crash into each other,
To create a lightning sword,
That Zeus would be proud of.
And a thunder that silences us mortals.
As I lie on my bed,
Soothed by the cold breeze wafting in,
Ignoring all my worries,
At this moment,
I am at peace.
