A Fistful Of Stars: Rain - Peacock

Rain rains but does not reign, declares Hariharan Balakrishnan's deliciously watery poem.

Rain in a cloud
Rain in a mist

Rain as a drizzle
Rain as a shower

A sheet of water
A torrent, tide

A gush, a shiver
A feeling cold

Rain to the land
Barren and dry

Rain in a song
A burst of joy

Rain of love
Rain on a dove

Rain of Peace
Rain eternal

Is also a drain
Is also flood

Is also woe
Is also bliss

Rain rains but does not reign
Rain roars but does not rail

It swings, it sings and it dances
Like a peacock under my rainless bow
