Waiting For The Rain - Poem by MAHTAB BANGALEE

from our concrete life,
global warming kidnaps
the jovial motion of the wind

winter is far away
from the spring

summer day
scorching weather
under the crimson flame, I'm sweating

waiting; I'm waiting
for the pleasant adventure of raining

the rain doesn't come on time
the rain doesn't come to bathe
though sometimes the earth needs bathing

    Yearning for rain... all that breathes and grows. " I'm waiting for the pleasant adventure of raining" ... well captured anticipation. (Report)Reply

    Wait till the Monsoons will come. A most beautiful poem, short but says a very lot about the nature up there. Excellent poem, Mahtab! I like the poem and the picture very much, eerie to see that blackest hole above.
