At the tip

By Arijit Roy

It has rained heavily
and everything through the window seems clean .
Trees , plants ,shrubs
all are rich again , back in the colour of youth.

A little raindrop somewhere
is dangling at the end of a shoot ,
determined to let go of the plant
yet not ready to embrace the soil .

It reminds me of me
for I too ,
am dangling at the end of a shoot

determined to fall in love

yet not ready to face the fears .
