The Last Love

a poem by Janaki Rani

Sun and moon are waiting lovers,
Giving up after twelve hours.

Forever late rainbow woos the rain,
But his charms are in vain.

With love, wind carries the cloud,
But she protests in thunders aloud.

Fragrance lingers around the flower,
When she withers, he deserts her.

Sea is in love with the beach,
His hands keep on trying to reach.

Dew falls in love with grass at night,
But flees at the broad daylight.

With lightning the mushroom has a crush,
Only to lose her love in a flash.
