Contemplation: Rain

Kahlil Gibran

Poem Prompt : Khalil Gibran Quote from the Prophet: Chapter:- On Death


I watch the rain from my window,
and watch nature put on a show,
of rain’s pitter patter, thunder and lightening
an opera that’s both exhilarating and frightening,

Nature bathes to unlock goodness,
and with deluges washes it away,
I watch the rain from behind glass panes,
contemplating both loss and gain.

The cosmic dance,
of forces of darkness and light,
for eternity from the heavens above,
watches Eternal Love.
