Nature’s kin, the earthborn beings,

Every soul shelters

a nature within.

Tear-brimmed eyes

are infinitesimal clouds.

Every blink a lightning.

Every glare a thunder.

Then the tears travel south

like a river adamant to

engrave its own path.

Staining all lands

with sentiments moist.

A smile fine,

is condensed sunshine.

Refulgent and live

like minuscule streaks of wildfire

powered by fiery wind,

vaporizing the moistures

drying away the gloom,

which the tears hide

In their lucent bulk.

In the microcosm of a human

The fire gets to win.
