What I Overheard


1.
Wind asked Jasmine: How do you look so gorgeous?
Jasmine said: As the delight of others gets reflected on me
Jasmine to the wind: How do you blow so gentle?
Wind said: As the melody of mine I want you to enjoy

2.
Sea asked waves: How can you sing and dance all the while?
Waves said: Feel great in amusing the viewers
Waves to the sea: How do you look bluish and beautiful?
Sea said: I am happy taking away the viewers grief.

3.
Cloud asked the wind: Why do you chase me till I dispel?
Wind said: As I want you to be blessed gifting life to all.
Wind to the cloud: Why do you change colour and content?
Cloud said: The aim of my birth being so fulfilled.

4.
Sky asked birds: Why do you take flight to the skies?
Birds said: As the flap of our wings fill music in the space.
Birds to the Sky: Why is your space so open and still?
Sky said: Appealing to be modest even at this zenith.
