Rain And The Window Pane

by samantakbhadra

That big grey palate

Outside my window

Stroked with raindrops

Happiness from the skies

 —

The window sighs

While I look outside

Gentle drops of water

Adorn the window-frame

 —

The Gods do play

While the Earth sings

She is the bride, they say

We shower her with rain

 —

The earthy fragrance

Flirting with the wild orchids

Lulling the newborn to sleep

Avatars of happiness, it seems

 —

Hoarse laughter from the crow

Perched now on the treetop

Drenched in the rain

Feels like a king, for sure

 —

My mind is on the streets

Jumping in the puddle

Near that tailor’s shop

Simple joy it seeks

 —

Unrestrained hair blowing

Being wooed by the wind

Sitting beside the window

I put on a pleasant grin

 —

The heart is light

The soul is unshackled

Leaving the skin behind

I dissolve in the surroundings

 —

The rain is still falling

The thunder is boasting

Intoxicated I am now

In the wine of happiness
