Rain upon the monsoon road side

Rain upon the monsoon road side

July 15, 2013 Off By Kanchan Bhattacharya



White cranes,

Amid soaring clouds


Rain dithers

Above farmers


Monsoon winds declare

She would burn pining, at stake

Those clouds- cruel, insane


Green rice fields, straw hats,

Bent women sing songs, deep love

Lonely scarecrows watch


The slanted droplets

Upon windows messages

A raincoat flutters


In soft rhymes, gently

Monsoon sang as rivulets

Drew murals on Earth


Wet walls, dark sketches

Rain seeped strange calligraphy

Pitter-patter pats


Then you smile again

Like rain, wetness beneath eyes

Sometimes hides stories


Thunder sounds gently

As my heart roars, you arrive,

Into my parched soul


Rain, a tar road winds

Up hills, a man and woman

Wait for bus, kissing



Is like

This rain

Seedlings of wishes begin
