Varsha (Monsoon) 2020 Poems - Sandeep Kumar Mishra


First Monsoon

By Sandeep Kumar Mishra


Immigrant pregnant clouds in this high time
preparing to deliver aerial showers,
huge watery vessels, like a developed baby
too heavy to hold in atmospheric womb


Lightening proclaiming over the vastness
of the supply of life fluids,
weary peasants’ restless eyes wait for
their intimate dark relatives


Timorous honeybees, humble sparrows at bowers
Come! Welcome the procession of yearly joy
Come! Acquire this treasure of wet stuff
Look ! Silvery tip-tip deepens every available aide
pure life distils from the lofty branch- let


A pacy white perennial stream is on a raid,
polished jade vegetation, rinsed pavement is wet
everything is tame now, even the wild get modest
the sweet scent of sand is tempting to taste,
I want to be wet party, some memento to keep


Watery pearls blush their face in late Sun rays,
feathered creatures in a bow as rainbow crescent sways,
candour heart inhaling aromatic worship,
earth colourfully adorned like an Indian bride
in her first monsoon, commanding pride
