Did It Have To?


by Atul Ranchod

Did it have to rain?
Did it have to be beautiful?
Did the temporary need such detail?

Such a seamless divine gift.
Thirst in all its glory
At the crux of this story.

No debate,
No philosophy,
No concept.

Unearth the link
To quench a lifetime
In a single drop.

What kindness beyond compare!
The deluge happens again and again.
Upon the highest throne
Thirst makes it all known.

Gift given.
Gift received.
Heart fulfilled.
Thirst and water;
So elegant is this dance.
