a poem by Purushothama Rao R

Don’t allow your thoughts
To pass on the paths upside down
They may prove hilarious at present
Though really serious in content

Let us not wish Stars to come down to earth
To continue their precious deed of flashing light
Let not for God’s sake the rivers do rocket to the sky
And start streaming flows from their new abodes

Expect not the Sun to come nearer to Earth
All living beings result in a lush of ash
Let all the planets do their duty from the assigned places
And let our dedicated wishes rain in deserved lots to the needed plots
