We’ve been on the road for almost a month after having shifted our house, and I’ve missed the inspiration I get online.
Meanwhile, change is definitely in the air; monsoon is playing hide-and-seek with us, and fresh growth is around the corner.
A new chapter is about to begin..
as they hit the ground.
Kamikaze Rain drops,
plummet onto land
bouncing back homewards.
The first few rows of soldiers
are chopped down,
The solar army hot
in its months-long momentum,
an angry shield of potent heat.
The battles continue
like they have since seasons many.
Now the Trees join in, an uprising,
and lakes begin swelling with energy,
the wind picks up and blows the heat away.
I’ll come back stronger, says the Sun,
to burn the trees, pull the water back,
strangle the breeze,
and reclaim my transparent, watery trophy.
In the scent of the earth as she bathes,
and the roar of the sea when she waves
In the stillness of the river as oars strike,
and the wetness of dew as sun awakes
In the thirst of a man lost at sea,
and the farmer’s smile as spells break
In the dreams that set sail as boats float,
and the splash in mudplies as kids play
In the soft tryst with snow as it fades,
and the sweet sound of drops as trees sway
In the fate of the leaves as seasons change,
and the wells of joy ‘n sorrow that tears make
Therefore I am
