Empty Skyboat

By: Dr. Ujjwala kakarla

All night...
Without a word
The sky
drips drips,
the raindrops
Wiping the dirt
of the summer.

The rain...
Lashing down
without a word
Asks, "Which twig
on the tree will be
the next to sprout?"🌷

The skyboat...
without a word
carrying the
roaring clouds,
Seems empty
without the moon.
