The Love that Lives in a Moment - Manushya Puthiran

Image result for raindrop painting

What can I do
with just a single
drop of rain?

How can I live
with a just a moment’s
love or compassion?

I always
drink an expired medicine
I always
travel on an expired ticket
I always
live in an expired moment

When could I evaporate
like a moment’s rain drop
like a moment’s intimacy
leaving no trace behind
