Raindrops from the previous night,
Drenched a lotus leaf with all their might
But being one to always hold its own,
The leaf prayed for winds so the little drops would be blown.
Soon a gentle breeze kissed the little pond
And one by one the drops loosened their bond,
At last the lotus leaf stood free and clear,
Proud and strong that it held no one too dear.
Just when it thought, it was free of all rain,
And swayed with the ripples knowing it would never feel it again,
It caught a little rainbow sparkling in the sun
And saw that a tiny raindrop was prancing in fun.
Said the little drop to the leaf, “Try hard as you might, I won’t leave your heart.
No matter how strong the wind, I will never be apart.
And if you ask me the reason why, all I know is this,
On a day when the sun scorches you, I will remind you of the monsoons you miss.”
