THIS MAY AND I....


This May and I
Never even whisper into the ears of each other
'How are you'?

With the hot Sun ready to fry the land down
And the cumulonimbus clouds playing hide and seek
This May is not cordial to us
But I am sure, I like this May...

But I seek in you, dear May,
A phase of joy and togetherness.
May I be looking into your eyes burning?

I may try to see there a little moisture of those eyes
But this May too is silent too
Like the Sun who never responds to life`s cries!
We are two sides of a coin minted by an unknown power.

This May and I
Just for once may let out a note of sweet cry
As I go to my native place in a noisy train.

I shall stand near a dozen elephants this May,
I shall be lost in a crowd in frenzy this May,
I shall spin a web of joy around me this May
And I shall cherish those thoughts for ever.

This May and I
For a while witness the downpour of sweet smiles and words
As a get together is in offing for me too.

I shall then go to yet another elder sister`s home this May,
I shall see there a few good souls living in contentment,
I shall have a little manna from their plates
And I shall cherish the visit for long!

This May and I
Will witness the new empire in New Delhi founded.
Bur I shall not be surprised or shocked about the dispensation.

They are going to decide upon India`s dos and don`ts
For much can be done in this country already undone!
And Soon I shall return to my house far off
To live with the squirrels at their mercy......

    In the searing heat of May
    When dreams float on hot afternoons
    We shall find the bliss of occasional rain
    And the promise of an early monsoon........

    Good poem Sir. (Report) Reply

    In my travel itinerary the destinations are clear Valsa madam and I am going to keep the word given to a potential host and a noble hostess that I shall be at theirs for a while this May.
