Monsoon Musings - Poem by indira babbellapati

…and on this
cool cloudy monsoon morning
as you strolled at a distant
horizon along the
village bunds and canals
wandered across the
native soil preparing
itself for the next sowing
i opened the door to
a light-hearted wind that veiled me
from the rest of the world
it cast an alluring net
dabbed in the perfume of late
summer flowers soaked in the
damp rain-soaked earth
the endless tidings the waves
of wind whispered
tickled me enough
on the black sky
a lightning that flashed
pierced my heart like
a dagger of desire
the so far-longing leaves
in immobilizing passion
stirred occasionally in
an attempt to shake off
the beads of satiated desire
each time a thunder rolled
i hugged your invisible presence
in a teenage glee

a distant koel cooed
probably in adieu
proclaiming that it’s
after all early morning

    You have drawn the imagery of an early monsoon morning very neatly here. You wrote the poem almost five years ago, sitting God knows where, and you see how a distant reader is mused here, reading your poem. That is the beauty of poetry. It pleases parched hearts like the monsoon soaks the parched soil.
    'each time a thunder rolled
    i hugged your invisible presence
    in a teenage glee' - So beautifully said, simply superb!
