Summer Rain - Poem by Tanzila Rehmat

The kissing scorch branded gentle marks on my cheeks
Blotted freckles forcefully pierced and tweaked
The roads felt like licked by the fierce tongues of the sky
The waters on the ground gurgled and did sigh!

Joyful, warm and mellifluous like birds humming
Summer Rain did not announce its coming
Tearing the shawl we were wrapped in
Tiny little drops showered, tapped and grinned!

Splashes did mean as if composing a romantic song
For Summer Rain it was all perfect, nothing seemed wrong
Every creature on the earth rejoiced, joined the water
Birds' hum, prayer's call, children's titter and totter!

Brought a song that didn't need the piano or guitar
A warm embrace of mists did leave a turquoise scar
Clouds felt like candy floss scattered all around
Occupying the Big Blue cosmos and the ground!

Velvety pecks of the Summer Rain's breeze wafted in
Bringing the tiny balloons of snow as their kith and kin
Flowers' fragrance felt as if procured from the Deer's
Sweet-smelling and perfumed seemed the whole sphere!

Summer Rain signed off as sky roared as lion in den
With a silent warning letter of its appearance again
Every evidence of its mild crimes were silently wiped out by the screaming heat
Water from the floors, freckles from the cheeks and wetness of walls
Could not even argue nor could they beat!
