The Wind and Rain


he wind blows with a sound
it is terrific in the round
hissing and wheezing it takes off
storming and roaring it progresses
whining and whimpering it ends
the wind then blows off.

The branches of trees swirl fast
the leaves fall down in a rustle
the place is strewn with twigs
comes down the rain in a drizzle
a welcome shower to drench with cheer.

The rain starts with a rhythmic chant
the tiny drops fall with a poise
followed by the big drops on the field
it picks up speed with an enchanting prowl
the lovely pour down appears fantastic.

The parched land seems to brighten
enlivened by the ripples of the rain
the tumultuous showerswind and rain enliven the soil
the fecundity is aroused with force
there all along are signs of prosperity
significant and symbolic of growth.

The Truce


It was a cease-fire
the consequences were dire
dead bodies lay in the pyre
they were set on afire
yet the animosity lingered
the ego had to be tinkered
peace had to be enforced
the anger had not to be aroused.ceasefire
painful it was to work on a treaty
there was many an ambiguity
the treatise was signed reluctantly
and the fight came to a halt temporarily.

The Wait.


I had to wait a little
made me frettle
I was like a kettle
boiling and fuming .

The time dragged on
I sat there all alone
would have flown
if not for the necessity,

Wait, I had to for long
lost my patience not wrong
diffused in the throng
I stood aghast and irritated.

It seems to be over the move
I had nothing to prove
jumped into the car and drove
an end to the wait finally.
