There falls the rain / Poem by Debabrata Mohanty

 
Poem by Debabrata Mohanty
 
 
There falls the rain
 
Summer has widened its lips
To taste the falling nectar
made in heaven and served on earth.
‘One heck of a mess’, say the drenched crowd…
 
They shut themselves behind iron gates
Close the window glasses too
To force stop the rain’s wilderness
And it flows down the arid land…
 
Not a drop goes waste
Unlike the valley of tears
Barring its failed attempt
To sprinkle the desert of thoughts..
 
Again the rain comes in a dancing spree
After the heavy wind has razed the sandy tower…
They look at the white sky…
 
Seeking no umbrellas overhead .
