Chennai Rains & Kannagi

With the anklet  held in her hand
She stands completely numb;
Her stained eyes  
speak  a thousand emotions.

Her forefinger points them
those at the helm;
For transforming her
to a piece of stone.

But, I see,
her heart throbs  with pain;
to see her kin languish
for survival  in the downpour.

What remains  afloat
is  the agony;
and helplessness.
