Rain dance...

Grey skies, heavens silent
Lightning, thunder, cloudy torrent.
Seeping cool, spreading winds,
A pitter-patter, lightly sings.

Tickly drops, glistening earth
A warm scent, a cold hearth
A palm I spread, to let the drops
Drizzle past me, as all sound stops

My weathered griefs, my old woes
Despondence deep, dark sorrows,

Oh mighty rain, wash me clean,
Rinse me off my memories harsh
Let me blossom, unfurling petals,
Lotus of a mucky marsh!

Wash me clean of fading hopes
Of world's confines, stifling ropes

Lift me high, drowned in trance
Dreams alight, thoughts prance
Wash me off my weathered self,
A free woman, in a Wild dance...
A free woman, in a Wild dance...


Just the sort of thoughts the Rain brings in :-)

Oh mighty rain set me free
Lemme stand alone like a tree
which handsfree and footloose
enjoys the drops sent loose
unlike us humans always in trance
And ever afraid to make a move Or play a dance !!!

Thank you for leaving your comment on 'Anju & Subhra' blog. The rain does indeed set loose a whole lot of memories and dreams for the future alike. The monsoon has always fascinated me with its formidable dark thundering clouds, the joy of dancing about in the first rain and not to forget the making of paper boats, watching them sail away on sea of puddles.Nice post.
