On life and its vagaries

Accidental Coincidences

with 2 comments

When a river is in spate

It doesn’t know what it does

Its wrath is incidental

And not of its own making

The sad part is

It disrupts lives

Erodes boundaries

Encroaches into homesteads

Water,  as is word

Is primal

Both are sacred

And both make us scared

Effects could even occur by

Being in the right place at the wrong time

These are accidental coincidences

Which we failed to take note of

I usually watch both perform

Their unintentional ‘foul’ deeds

And I am amused by the display

Of emotions, they create
