One Fine Day

a poem by Arun Nair

Once upon a time, over the clear blue sky on a fine day,
the sun smiling over from his abode,
glistening the heaven over abound with his ray,

and then the skies lost their glitter,
the smile of the sun turned bitter,
lashing down heavily came the rain,
the torrent it turned added the pain.

as soon it came so was it gone,
the beast that it was now subdued,
and out of the blue, came smiling back again, the rays shining
the sky clear once again and everything was better.

So is life my friend, a glimpse of tear and then glitter.
