It was a clear afternoon yesterday, till we experienced the first downpour of the monsoons. I was out on a drive and it started drizzling. Suddenly, the entire view outside the car window got blurred and the glass seemed like a Croxley puzzle— hazy, complex and unsolved. Life is like that only! At times, it gets incomprehensible even with subtle things or else sometimes, it’s capable of sustaining the most brusque situations.
Clear glass turns puzzle
Coined by Raindrops, fluttering
on the Windowpanes.
Truth becomes baffled,
Intertwined with perplexed life,
A jigsaw puzzle
Blurred vision makes
a hazy puzzle out of
