Sonnet: Life’s A Mix
The sky is blue with fluffy clouds and clear;
It rained all cats and dogs till yesterday;
Bird-melodies on nearby trees, I hear;
How long it will thus stay, no one can say.
The mid-day sun is scorching on each head;
It looks like summer ’midst rainy weather;
The drought had left cattle and plants much dead!
Let Heaven send the monsoon rain, brother!
In life will come both joys and sorrows too;
To stay balanced, we need both friend and foe;
Just take the things as they come up to you;
Our earthly life, we must thus undergo.
But things do happen for the good of all;
God helps each one to get up aft’r a fall!
