आकाशगामिकरमृष्टसुमं सुवक्त्रम्
मेघाश्रुपातबहुलेन फलं सुपक्वम् ।
वायुप्रकम्पशिथिलं पतितं च बीजम्
कः  बीजपाकवचनः स हि काल एव ॥

The flower blooms when it is touched by the rays of the sun;
The fruit ripens when it is watered by the tears of the cloud;
The seed falls when it is shaken and loosened by the wind;
But kāla alone can tell you when all of this will happen.
