Monsoon Musings

The Fragrance Of Monsoon
The damp earth, the sudden green leaves
The unseasonal dewdrop on the grass
The sun peeping amidst grey overalls
Oh what fragrance is this

The scorching heat gave way to cool breeze
The dull brown replaced by the bright hues
Suddenly mother nature looks abuzz
Oh what fragrance is this

The crickets break the monotony of the dark evening
The toads join the cacophony
Life in all its elements reminding us..
Oh what fragrance is this.

Monsoons are here, yes yes yes, monsoons are here
In its splendour, in its glory,
With its damp dark brightness
In the burst of colours, in the light of a rainbow
Monsoons are here, yes yes yes, monsoons are here

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
