Rainy Days And Mondays

It's Monday The day of the dead leaves and fresh flowers The dry and wet hours Like the other days Of life and death The desert and the lake Thousands of the little ponds The debris waiting for the mansion Farmers stacking the hay The trains that run every day It's Monday It's raining As it rained last Friday too The leaves whisper With the caterpillars The rivers playing football The children of water The toad is in laughter The breezes leave rustles in the blades The larks look on The flood has robbed a family of life The relatives weep The rains stop a little and smile The window down under my heart Calls me It was on a Monday too Only yesterday as it were Do you remember? Your permanent shadow Arrived on my canvas The dream painting I am still doing The rain got jealous It came down on the shadows heavily The time got flooded As the water receded A little plant raised its head Got blended with my butter and bread Moon-flower in the dream The sunbeams woke me up Whenever Monday is accompanied By the rains The pains of the window Call me to you With the windows holding the flowery hues I look for the brushes To pick the colour For the shadows of the rustles Slowly and softly The gladioli _____________________________ February 21, 2018 Rainy Days And Mondays - Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Silent One

Very nice ... Barry finds it delightful whereas you feel it is dreadful ... This is the mystery of poetry ... Be that as it may, Vijay , in no poem of mine I have ever highlighted dreadful aspects and this poem is no exception ...

Delightful poem, Probir. Good luck in the contest. Definitely +Fav. // Barry
