A Damsel in Distress

A cool shimmering moon in the sky
Waxes and wanes day by day
Thunder and lightning during monsoon
Add gusto to the gloomy day
The swaying creepers and the rustling leaves
Dance in sync with the smitten breeze
A whiff of a blooming bud –
Mesmerizes ye to forget the miasma
The placid waters on the sea
Advance or retreat incessantly
A bejeweled goddess in shrine –
Speaks not but grants
A fruit-laden tree in woods
Wants not a favor in return
The gurgling river across the states
Changes the parched earth into fertile
Ye, damsel with the broken wings

Come hither to see a rainbow in the world.
