Flood in the Sky

Richa Gupta sent us a poem along with this image that was taken in June 2019 during a flight to Pune and which inspired the verse.

Flood in the Sky

Pure blue heavens cry
Waves crash n’ smash by
Mercy! O Mercy!
There’s flood in the sky…

No drop for the thirsty
No splash for the stained
No voice for the weary
No pat for the pained…

Scurrying round and high
On azure conscious floor
Their gust gliding my skin
Their sighs banging the door…
