Men running in fright,
Plants soaking in delight.
Curses uttered by some,

Gratitude
In the hearts of others.
 
Each drop that lands – 
A ripple in a puddle.
Like a wave erupting
From the depths of the ocean,
Finally embracing the shore.
 
Sitting idle and reminiscing
Fond, beautiful memories,
With raindrops falling
Like the gentle kisses
Of a lover.


Shivashankar Thillaikumar is currently serving National Service, having graduated with a Diploma in Law & Management. He plays the flute and the dilruba in his spare time and hosts a keen interest in music. Shiva also enjoys martial arts and gaming.
