SPRING SETTING IN !~by Saroj K Padhi




Image may contain: cloud, flower, sky, plant, nature and outdoor

Leaves of all hues trapped in an unknown ecstasy
Kiss a passionate wind with love that softly arouses
buds from Winter’s deep sleep to a new hue and cry
that informs cuckoos to descend from far distant sky
to come to sing , and mango-buds to boughs, to bring
with echoes of Nature’s new pageantry in ears to ring ;

when news of a possible terror attack at joints near
startle breaths of morning flowers with a strange fear
tucked into their petals that fumble before they open
when others allay in their efforts such fears to soften
and slowly morning with lovely images does brighten;
with peace drizzling from flags saffron, white and green
and on faces of all, freedom shines in bright new sheen:

breezes wear anklets to dance many classical beats
fountains move still higher to fall from great heights ;
birds paint their plumes with many sweet soothing dyes
clouds stare at all this glory with wonder in their eyes,
crows laugh louder at jokes from sparrows’ little beaks
in much an enchanted spirit this lovely morning speaks .
