From Delayed Rain To Parched Earth - Poem by Ravi Upadhye

An overladen sky forever pouring its heart out
To the parched soil waiting to be drenched in an otherwise sorrowful mood

It has arrived far too late for her to chase the blues

But has it not been a respite from the solitude -the noose?

Pleading and begging relentlessly through the thunder and lightening,
Making amends not realizing the vainness of it all -genuinity not withstanding

Would the earth ever pardon the delay?
Understand my plight, and let me have my say?

I meant well and tried hard,
It wasn't my fault
It took me time to gather the clouds -thats all
I always had the passion and urge to meet you and drench you
I was poor then,
Thats all
Will you hug me with open arms?
For I want to be on time next year -promise you I shall!
