Season's First Rains - Poem by Paulami Guha Biswas

after the rain and the fresh mud
under the drenched trees and masked flowers
in its perfume and shine, of dew
i take your leave for another avenue

as the last of the clouds faded into the twilight sky
i thought it would be easy to hide those tears

as your hand gripped mine tighter
i realised it was hard to miss

numbed and benumbed by the austerity
we still took the road most often taken

I smelled you in the night sky
I touched in brevity under the shaky mango tree
I kissed beneath the twilight sky
and cried alone, at times, forlorn

i can still smell you in the rain
i can sill touch you in the unripe summer mangoes

you are in me through the rains and throughout the rains
