Meghaduta is a Sanskrit poem written by Kalidasa that depicts a Yaksa's plea to a cloud shaped as an elephant to take his message to his beloved. The poem in this case is used as a metaphor to a peacock's cry towards the sky for rain before the onset of monsoon in India.
"Amidst the scorching heat, he cries out to the lonesome cloud floating by as his body stretches and cranes in agonizing beauty requesting atleast a droplet of his beloved Varsha (rain) to drench his sparkling blue presence in."
