NIGHT SHOWERS~by Saroj K Padhi




Rain goes on writing
endless lyrics of love on the body of an aroused Earth
when tears in the eyes of leaves flow
to drop on, with desire for a cherished union,
and the wind repeats the sad refrain of separation
between your rainbow presence and a set Sun ;

dots of dark plunge you but into night’s honeycomb
where you seem to have overcome loneliness
that threatens me every moment
with thoughts of oblivion,
jasmines give out their last bout of smell
before nodding off into a colorful dream of the dawn,
when the moon emerges like a wounded soldier
from behind the black clouds
to fight its last battle for self-expression !
