Footsteps in the Rain

Updated on May 18, 2012

A poem written on Rainy Season

Stubbornly starched banks, dried rivulets,

Sucked flower-beds and parched streams

Stare at the clear expanse looming up,

Hoping and praying for a change of scene.

The flaming blaze of orange

Shines down with unrelenting force,

Fires rays on the lusterless earth

Burning meadows, fields and parks.

The red is wiped out by a charm.

Thunder is heard all around.

With rare ovation and open arms

Raindrops are welcomed by raising hands.

Pale yellows mellow, turn sublime greens.

Emeralds dot the vista in a sensual sheen

Clouds accompanied by azure showers

Lash the aura with united power.

Seeds burst into saplings

Overjoyed by the irrestible union,

Peacocks come out dancing in glee

Splashing, merrymaking in puddles of blue.

Rain, you are gone by the time its dawn

Refuse to stay, vanish in oblivion

Even then, you break the lifeless spell

by the pitter-patter of your sound.

Will you condescend to come again?

Thou art like him in many ways.

Is that why I long for yo to pour

soaking me from head to toe?
