Summer Rain


I am drunk again…
High on the smell of wet earth
As the burnt earth
Rejuvenates and sways with promise of life

I look on and wait
To hide in the warmth of your breasts
While the sky celebrates
The timeless exultation of life

The solitary green bench…
Under the shade of gaunt trees
The lonely witness…
To the masterpiece on the eternal canvas

It is time again…
To dance as if no one’s watching
And live…
Even if no one cares

And all is set right…
As, rain washes away
All the accumulated tears
And pent up pain

So, I embrace you again, rain
My love and pain…
And I wait. Look up.
And walk on as my rain embraces me.
