once there was a time when the sun and the rain were enemies,
they hadn’t talked or seen each other for centuries.
the reason for the fight was nothing but who’s supreme?
the rain thought he was the best, the sun found his powers extreme.
according to the rain, he was responsible for the coolness,
I bring new greenery, he thought, I bring peace and soothness.
life cannot survive without me, thought the mighty sun,
I give the energy with which the world runs.
either it rained for months, either it was bright,
people started complaining, they didn’t got the weather right.
when it rained, the people yelled that they want light,
and when up came the sun, they wanted that it should rain a slight.
after much request, the sun agreed to shine when it rained,
they were amazed to see how much happiness people gained.
neither it was all wet now, nor it was all too hot,
their companionship can bring prosperity, they thought.
the sun hugged the rain and promised that brotherhood they’ll show,
that’s when the symbol of their friendship was born, the seven colored, beautiful rainbow.
