There was a thud, thud-thud, I heard someone said,
Sounded like, “It’s just the beginning” and I swayed.
Anticipated my dad’s return from the trade,
Toddled towards the door with the eyes still dead,

I opened up to smell the moist soil in the air,
To see a puddle with droplets bouncing here and there.
I could hear the whispers of the rain embracing the leaves,
The thud in the background woke me out of my sleep,

The earth had a porous umbrella over its head,
The birds took a day off, the Sun rested in the cloudy-bed,
With the drops playing the drums, frogs singing the song,
The wind rocked in the concert and the peacock danced along.

How much I wished the sight to last longer, till eternity,
How much I hoped it’s not a dream but reality!
It soon died, like it always did, every time!
Woke up to see a smelly earth, and the devil Sun shine,

With a void of moisture in the atmosphere,
Ate on the grass roti and had to drink my own tear.
Asked my mom, where we were headed to,
“To a place with the green grass and some water too!”

I wished I could borrow some from the dream I see..
Rather like to stay asleep forever, said to my mummy.
Wondered would it ever rain, I could taste it again,
The “amrit”, we need it, else it would be my brother again..

    Very beautiful poem.
    Unique, hearty & hard hitting
    Liked immensely.

    ( I think ‘on tear’ should read ‘own tear’)
