Baarish

Kaale aur ghane badal hai asman me wahi,
Mitti ki khushbu hai agaan me sahi,
Barish ki bunde hai baras rahi,
Aise hai asman aur darti mil rahi,
Asman me bijali hai kadak ke keh rahi,
Na rahe ye andhera aur naa paap ki nagari kahi,
Darti bhi khush hoke hai jhoom rahi,
Har dil ki kasti hai is barish me beh rahi,
Dharti ek hari chaadar hai udh rahi,
Suraj ki pehli kiran bhi sabko khushiya de rahi…

sadly we haven't time for much of this anymore
This poem is so real and old fashioned but coming from Indiana too years back I still say un's when I talk to my kids, just like the way he does in the poem of 'Granny' Thanks Poet hunter for printing this on here. I have enjoyed reading many poems here on your site..Thanks.
