Awaiting Monsoon Rains

Poem By Nalini Jyotsana Chaturvedi

I want to touch the rainbow
so I wait for rains to come
with rising summer heat
it will soon be monsoon's turn

Like sapless lifeless leaves
I feel so parched and weak
but promise of impending rains
does ease away my pains

That smell of rain on dirt
as nature gives new birth
I feel the hope around me
there will be no dearth of mirth

Like every year
that has come and gone
I will wait for rains
like my dried up lawn.

Surrounded by mountains
Clouds hiding their peaks
I feel so much at home
ThIs floral valley, heart. seeks

Misty dawns
Shivering sunshine
Dew drops on lawns

Of human relations
A neat ball of wool
Changes into fuzzy creation

The stage has been set
For the beautiful and rich to perform
It's my important role
To see that curtains have been drawn

I will see you around
when you touch the ground
For now you are
like a big bright star

I Belong To No One

The feeling you have
just before you are about to unshackle all the ties
start planning for life, devoid of lies
where you have time to spend with yourself
