BACK TO LIFE

BACK TO LIFE


It was raining then with showers sweeping the town

With cool droplets driven by the breeze panning from dawn to dusk!


Prickling my lips my eyebrows my cheeks

Swinging my memories from butterflies of the yore!

Around my elementary school of age


Every fresh dropp of rain smells as fresh as new earth

Tastes as sweet as nectar of the core!


Come Monsoon each time quiver each cell in me,

Kindles every memories in deep


Brings back my bygone smells of broken pencils,

Tender sweats, wonder scent of girl friends of mine


Each year each monsoon I grow year young by year young

I grow year after year; in leaps and bounds

in a hurry younger and younger


Close to my school close to my habitats close to my town

Like in a man machine, but in a memoirs machine

Back to life!
