Postpone Your Monsoon Wedding And Just Think About Them


People talk about the monsoon wedding,
The drizzling monsoon
And the lovers walking
Drenched with,
I do not want to talk these.

When it does not rain for long, the lands dry down,
Humidity soars high
And it sweats,
At that time the rains seem to be most welcome
As for a relief from as well as paddy crops,
Requiring standing water.
.
But think about the low-lying areas
Threatened under,
The situation alarming there
And be prepared for the natural calamity.

The poet will forget his poetry
On marking the red flood waters swirling and engulfing
And the hutments and mud-dwellings half under waters.

Poetry will come to again,
Lines slipped and missing or may not,
But life more costly than poetry lines.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
