paper flotilla

I feel like sitting with a hot cuppa
Watching the battle fierce;
As the sky massacres the hot crust
With its quiver full arrows;

Tips studded with droplets of rain,
Arrows dart through thin air.
The war wages ceaselessly,
While mortals on earth run helter skelter;

Drop by if you’d like to give me company.
Do forget your umbrella
In case you’re coming over.
But forget not to bring along your note pad.

I too will have one by my side.
But we won’t scribble a word,
As the rains drops might be a real spoil sport
By washing away all our thoughts on paper.

We'll make paper boats and set it sail,
Watch it cruise through puddles and drains;
With sails wide open for the winds
To steer the flotilla away into the deep.

Sometimes we need to do our own paper boats and exercise what we call infant age...
