Cool monsoon evening
Tender cold breeze!
Still dark clouds on the western horizon
In the back drop of the factory chimney
And the crest of the church and temple!
In a perfect silhouette!
Chirping home bound birds
Bleating goats on the mud hills
The whistling passing train at a distance!
Occasional cold swirling winds
Beats the window shutters
The odor of pollens and petals of flowers
And burning smell of rubber scrap!
The plunged darkness behind me
Added perfect contrast
Of the vivid nature outside!
The prolonged silence in the ambience
And the loneliness in my life;
Making my mood to swing to the nature
With no friend or foe around me
the hot cup of tea beside me!
I just slide on the window shutter
Seeing GOD everywhere!
But resigned my self to my loneliness!
With content in life;
For what I had
Deriving every pleasure
From every whisper and fragrance
Passing through the window!
Fleeting my ears and cheeks!
Drop of showers
Trickling my hands!
To upkeep this
For ever till me!
