One fine day,

Sitting by the bay,

A young cloud with frown on his face

Asked the sea snoring at a fine pace,

O! Sire,

You are the oldest thing in this universe

As I learn from elders’ verse…

And also the rumors are spread at our place

That you created me and my entire race

How come a snoring giant like you can create me?

Me being a flying cloud you ever sleeping sea?

I hear that you know every song,

From Adam’s birth prayers to eve’s solitary mourn,

 You absorb every stone,

Every gem ever undone

You also hide verses

From fairytales to mermaid’s converses

 

You are always sincere in hiding secrets

Never revealing any to either of your mates

How come you so responsible?

 Why are you always sensible?

Why are you always so melancholy?

Never are you bored of being so lonely?

Didn’t thy ever fall in love with someone?

How couldn’t you ever have a chum?

 

Why do we have to die and you are always alive?

Why do you swap others?

When they never make you bother?

Why the kids coming for bath

Are absorbed by your wrath?

Why sun shines only at your shore

Why do you take him away from the tundra boars?

Why do we always obey you?

Why our anger always due?

 

O! Sire please answer my curiosity

The young cloud said unknown to his adversity
 

 

The sea saw with his closed eyes

Cloud just standing tall over in the skies

He smiled, and rose with a snore

Next moment, there was no young cloud anymore…
