Anthology 2013 Entries, Crowned Poem, English Poetry

I am a little drop of water

Together, we form an ocean,

I roll down your cheek

And I am your emotion.


At the edge of the leaf

I love to just hang out,

But I do gush as froth

From the fountain spout.



The clouds just held me

Close, in their loving arms

Till I felt like meeting you

And I fell in your farms.


Lakes, rivers, sea or ocean

Call me by any name,

A little drop of water

Will always remain the same.

    Thx. Seema,

    this poem i wrote last monsoon while i was driving & the lovely rain drops were falling on the windscreen. The thought just flased my mind, forming a few lines.

    sometimes, poetry is magic. & simplicity is something i love.

    thx. for ur kind words, tho’ i am just an engineer 🙂

    I entirely agree with Seema ji’s fitting comment about this poem.
    “What fantastic perception and powerful expression. A perfect “jugalbandi” of simplicity and depth.”
    I should say that an amazing poet within you has “engineered” this beautiful poetry. Engineers are mostly a very versatile lot. You know why I say this 🙂

    Great poem…..just one change if you can — the word hang out is really out of this poetic world…change it

    I love to just hang out……..may be….I love to just remain out……….or something likne that….

    what do you think….
