An Ode To Rain

Poem By Santhanagopalan Vasudevan

When you'd come, and when you'd go
No one in this world does, for certain, know.
You cool the earth down all in one,
Though you yourself are burnt by the sun.

Sometimes a flood, sometimes a drought,
You turn people's lives distraught.
With your power, you can make all life perish;
Yet, without you, no life can flourish.

Some say, they never touch each other - the earth and the sky;
Maybe they didn't see you in their mind's eye.

Comments about An Ode To Rain

This poem reminds me very much of one of my own poems also posted on this website and titled Ode To The Rain. If you get a spare moment please read.
Great poem. Rain brings devastation as well as much sought after relief to the farmers and people in general. It is rightly called the link between the sky and the earth. Thanks for sharing. You cool the earth down all in one, Though you yourself are burnt by the sun.
Simple, meaningful and the last two lines the most....indeed a good work- 10++++

The Wave

Wish I could cry
Over all my
Troubles so I
Could bid them goodbye.

Time, seen from a moving train, is an object too close;
You realize just after you cross, how fast it goes.
Standing far far away are those
Memories, to the heart, too close;

In Search Of Light

Behind the clouds, streaks of light I see
I want to know what its source would be.
If only they make way soon
Can I see if it's a sun or moon.


There's no-one in this world who lives all alone.
Atleast there's none who can so survive.
None can do all things on one's own.
None has all skills, to by oneself, thrive.

The Horse Or The Rider?

Should the horse be blamed, if the rider lost his way?
Isn't it he, who makes it sway?

Over its eyes, a blinder is wound,
