RAINDROPS FALLING

Written by: Yesha Shah

Heavenly necklace, let loose some pearly strands The raining beads fall pattering on my outstretched hands Rivulets flow in the criss cross grooves of my palms Vaulting destiny's hurdles, washing away all qualms Patting gently easing away forehead's worry furrows Pulling me to radiance from the deep dark burrows Shiny diamonds perform trapeze on the window bars Minuscule prisms breaking white light into myriad colors Dripping dropping below flowing through leaves first Eagerly awaiting sweltering earth quenching its thirst Every drop performing the worth of its attendance Soaking the air with its earthy misty fragrance Could be a soft drizzle or a heavy downpour be it may These falling drops brighten up a world that was grey!
