A Prayer to Clouds for all My Friends

A Prayer for all my friends in America and all over the World This Prayer Poem is for all my friends of America and for all those anywhere in the world who are waiting for Rains.
I have made this Prayer Poem on My Photo Poem and this can be seen in My Photo page on World Art Foundation This Prayer Poem actually supports my Folk Song ‘Folk Song of India -Farmer, Clouds, Rains and Trees’ placed on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukRQxnYGQwQ&feature=plcp It may be a co incident but ever since I composed and placed the above Song on You Tube the drought like conditions improved in many parts of India drastically. A Prayer to Clouds for all My Friends O Clouds full of Rains Please go to my friend's place Where ever you see the land is dry And all the fields and trees Are waiting for your showers To get wet and to kiss Your ever refreshing Rains. You bless them With your nectar like Rains So their fields too May yield grains And their forests may be blessed With your love drops To again enfold you In their sweet and loving embrace.
O Clouds full of Rains Please go to my friend's place And give them The blessings of Your Beautiful immortal Rains. Ravindra Kanpur India 15th Aug. 2012
NOTE: Draught like conditions (not very acute almost 50% less Rains this year) prevailed in India in July, but after July last it improved in August and even some parts experienced excessive Rains till 27th August. I had composed a Song around 20th July for the Indian farmers as a Folk Song and have placed it in Poetry Soup on 24th July 2012 and on my Music Channel “RavindraKK1” on You Tube as a Folk Song of India. The Song explains the reasons of fewer Rains in the simple language of a farmer telling the story of Farmer, Clouds, Trees and Rains as a Folk Song of India. Ravindra 27th Aug. 2012

    Just back to read this again, we get an hour of rain every so often but it's just enough tokeep things alive. So many trees are stressed and losing their leaves. Such a dry year is fairly unusual. Hope you have good weather for your crops.

    I am reading your beautiful verse just after a downpour here in Virginia where I live. My prayer is that your prayer will be answered. Again, a most wonderful prayer in verse. Cynthia

    what a thoughtful, well thought out verse. God bless you and your poetry, excellent! Cindy L. Cayton

    How sweet of you to offer prayers for us Ravi, the need for rain has done its damage and the drought has ruined many crops in this part of the world. We will probably see huge increases for food and an inability to help nations struggling with starvation. You rightly point out the sadness of it all.

    What a beautiful gesture .... if it only were possible that those who have too much rain, could share their over abundance with those who are in the state of drought.... but the thought of friendship is what means the most in this beautiful poem! Blessings to you Ravindra!

    Ravindra I like the poem, but here in UK we have had dreadful floods all over the summer, last year we had a drought and a wate ban was imposed for the next five years, this year the ban was lifted as every resouvoir is full of water....David

    Thanks David for liking the Poem. The drought like conditions are prevailing in India also in some area too critical and some partly. This actually is the result of deforestation on a very large scale. I wish if we can understand that this is the result of man's own deeds. Will visit your page soon David...Love and best wishes..Ravindra

    Beautifully written. and thank you for your prayer... Here in Missouri are crops are already gone to far ro help. They're completely gone. But maybe some crops of this winters wheat may survive... Tho it's still too dry to plant anything at the moment... Farmers keep working and trying... and we are a persistant bunch...
