With the rains not coming
with the heat not going
there remains a lull all over.
The rains used to fall copiously
minimising the temperature considerably
releasing a sense of happiness all over.
The rains perhaps want to relax
and the heat wanting to punish
there exists an unpleasant comfort.
The take easy nature of rains
and the penalising attitude of the sun
have evaporated the earth of its moisture.
The parched land looks ugly
the sad faces appear desolate
depicting an anguish and agony.
Nature does play truant
once in a few years
teaching a lesson to man.
Man languishes in mirth
and diminishes in melancholy
never once trying to change.
A beautiful morning it is
chill and breezy all it is
with the whiff of fresh air
comes the dawn all fair
the trees bow down as the wind blows north
they rise up with the wind blowing south
the oscillation gives a soft cajole
leaving us refreshed on the whole
then come the birds that chatter with glee
flocking with their kin on a tree
with that there heralds children’s voices
rushing out to play in the place of their choices
that be the cold December morning
I saw a bird different
all in light grey colour with a yellow beak
being not used to seeing birds of reference
having such distinct colour and sleek
wondered from where it came from.
Might be a migratory bird from a land
known for cold and snow in the realm
fearing the icy wind had flown grand
travelling thousands of miles across
flying over the seas and mountains
scared off the iceberg and thaws
has come to a place certain
where there be no frost and no cause
as to get killed in the cold
where it could survive in moderate climate
with lots of sunshine and water
feeling much better and comfortable in a state
after the passing away of the charter
possibly would return to her abode
refreshed and re equipped in strength
The morning frost is biting
with a mist rising
yonder over the hills
slowing moving with a will
hiding the path all around
a partial invisibility in the round
affecting the traffic in a way
as people get stranded all the day
unable to proceed to work
as they have to look
at alternatives for their sojourn
making it a difficult prone
the day advancing toward noon
yet the chilliness continues soon
heading towards the night
when it would be freezing tight.
With a running nose
and a heavy cold
in the chest
With incessant cough
and difficulty in breathing
resulting in wheezing.
the common cold
the commonest infection
gives the maximum botheration
than any other ailment serious
Lying down becomes a problem
with a raised pillows
and a more or less
in an upright position
one can close the eyes
and the heart going up and down
the person passes the night
almost sleepless .
There was a large gathering
all in a lovely clothing.
Girls in pink and ladies in red
who had assembled took the lead.
Boys in blue and men in white
followed them throwing a lovely sight.
A delicious dinner was awaiting
while the fragrance was enticing.
The party began with the speech
soliciting all with a reach,
Other speakers spoke in length
of the host’s positive strength.
The audience wriggled in stiff bore
as the address went beyond yore.
The children were nodding their heads
as sleep coaxed them to go to bed.
The adults lost interest in the stuff
as it was almost a bluff.
Restless there was a move
with the guests.walking out in rows
The speakers continued their address
unmindful of the obvious redress.
The dinner turned cold and insipid
as the hours waiting for none passed rapid.
The clock struck twelve in the night
and the dinner laid grand was left without a bite,
