The garden abounds with fresh vegetables,
Ripe tomatoes sweep the pathway ,
Green chillies hang midway,
Eggplants bloom in purple along the causeway,
Leafy cabbages represent a royalty all the way.
Rains fall in a heavy downpour,
Flooding the garden in an uninterrupted sway,
The lovely vegetables get soaked in a desolate gay,
Snails big and small move about in the way.
They go about in a pace so slow ,
Coiling and recoiling in a manner so graphic,
Drawing into their hard shells seem so specific,
Over a period they multiply in numeric,
The garden encounters a danger symbolic.
The water recedes gradually ,
The soil happens to look like a slushy muddle,
The vegetables lie rotten in the muddle,
The snails track down the puddle,
The garden appears like an unsolved riddle.
