Rain: A Young Lover's Song!!
Is that you? Really have you finally come?
I stare in stark dis-belief as I hear you arrive in all your onomatopoeic regale
You wake me up with your grunting and growling….disturbing the silence of the mordant night....
Slowly I hear the same familiar pitter-patter on turpentine roof-tops
Displaying the grandiose beginning of a young lover’s song.
The strong enforcing fragrance of wet soil lingers on
When you hit the dust for the first time…….
From far and beyond like from a distant dreamland
You have arrived to quench the thirst of the parching earth
Exhibiting the deep satisfaction of a young lover’s song.
I see the trees.....they are happy now……..
They have got rid of their sun-dried leaves
The new bloom, awaits your sprinkling fall
To express their gratitude they sway and dance in your love
Infusing the novel freshness of a young lover’s song.
The birds are all perched on their nests
Trying to protect their young ones from your thunder-storm
But still they spread their folded wings and around they fly
Exhorting the feeling of pure mirthful joy
Releasing the true freedom of a young lover’s song.
I am trying to acclimate my best to keep pace with your changing moods
And I still wonder why you have arrived so late this year……….
You hear me rhetoric….. You just smile….I hear a distant thunder….may be it is your reply?
You suddenly stop and then start again catching me completely off guard
Soaking me in the playfully flirtatious nature of a young lover’s song.
