    You say, 'I love the rain.'
    But when it starts raining, you raise
    your umbrella over your head.

    You say, 'I love the Sun.'
    But when it spreads its rays, you start
    looking for shade.

    You say, 'I love the storm.'
    But when it starts blowing, closing doors and
    windows you alone get seated.

    You say, 'I love all men.'
    But when a poor man comes at your door in danger,
    in anger and in scorn your face turns red.

    Oh Martin
    Sometimes your voice was the thunder..
    Sometimes it was the falling rain.

    and made them vibrate.. empathic in pain.

  • 26.
    When people detest war and death
    like a dead rotten rat that spreads intolerable bad smell
    which way a mad dog detests water for its hydrophobia, -
    that habitation then can be called a country of worthless people
    where the sun should not rise ever, it should not rain
    and crops should not grow in the fields.
    (- Poem of Hatred (taken from Sayeed Abubakar's famous book 'Jukekhar Shes Jal'))

    The grass does grow
    The rains causes floods
    The earth does quake
    Tornadoes do travel
    And age, age grows older
    While all man has are warnings.
    (Power of Nature)

    Family values are a little like family vacations—subject to changeable weather and remembered more fondly with the passage of time. Though it rained all week at the beach, it's often the momentary rainbows that we remember.
