After it rained!


Roof-tops quickened
by juvenile shouts
kites are flying
against the sky
drawing strokes
of brilliant art
canvas sky
and artist breeze
changing patterns
now and then
flaked,
patched,
and barred clouds;
deep-delighting
wafts of breeze
fluttering, floating,
gliding birds;
haughty sun
is not so hot
throat of soil
is not so slaked
veins of leaves
are no more parched
peace-treaty
duly signed
between the heaven
and the earth,
life resurrected
after it rained!

    An absolutely beautiful poem Shahzia! Loved the verse 'kites are flying against the sky drawing strokes of brilliant art.' So very descriptive, I could just picture all the colors. Gave it a 10! (Report) Reply

    I can see the kites zig zagging in the wind against the vivid blue sky with cotton ball clouds.
    All around everything is taking in a fresh breath physically and spiritually. And for the moment life is good,
    very very good. (Report) Reply
