One Rainy Day In A City

Updated on April 16, 2015

The Rain drenched roads

run around and away

aimlessly

amid a shower

in desperate search

of a known destination!

Source

The gloomy dark weeping blind alleys

keep moaning

in their overwhelmed grave

for ultimate freedom!

Source

The lone rain-soaked wary bird

tries to wriggle out

from the labyrinth

of skyscrapers

and reach the clouds

in futility.

Source

The puddles

scattered around a field

couldn’t bosom

a fistful bit

of the crying skies

as a kin

after much effort.

Source

The motionless train

keeps waiting

for a driver

to make it move again

through wet tracks

and hopefully

gather pace in time

to run.

Source

The pavement dweller

drapes a veil

around his deluged world

to shoo away

the voyeuristic onlookers

in vain.

The moist verdant

has turned heavy now

as the capering wind

fails to run with ease

through it.

Source

A few drops trickle down

the traffic signal posts

and sprinkle away

with the speeding vehicles

in a mad rush.

Source

The half-wet

half-covered

homebound crowd

breathes to life again

in a despairing lunge

for grasping

one little assuring comfort zone

on the ply.

The hustling and bustling city

wears the look

of a grumpy old forlorn man today

being at the mercy

of the rain Gods

for a while

in a mirror image

of the sombre sky above.

Source

Life that laughs

also wants to cry the tears

lost somewhere

and found back

on one such Rainy Day!
