Veil Of Rains

Atul Chandra Sarkar

The tepid ocean incubates,
The cloud in its wavy nest,
Day by day,
The penne grows fluffy;
The thirsty earth looks up,
Cracked lips widen to receive;
In the next few days,
Feathers shall strengthen,
The wings for flight;
Hopeful eyes shall watch,
The white and dark swans,
Of clouds soar,
In the cerulean sky,
Migrate to ravenous destinations,
Such as the one, where I wait,
Like other forms of Life,
In squirmy eagerness;
I shall drench myself,
Satiate the tiniest pores,
I know, no one can satisfy me,
The way you do;
You descend in million forms,
For our good,
I have recognized you Beloved,
Hiding behind,
The lightning and thunder
Woven clouds,
Behind the storm and sleet,
Instilling frightful joy.
