A poem I wrote in summer (2005), a time when we look forward to rain



MONSOON

Nimbo-stratus clouds
Spread across the sky
Like wing of a bird
Each feather of it -
The clouds' each layer.

Softens soil, from seeds
Spring saplings, forests
Back in green, mountain
Rivers regain roar.

Barrier free breathe,
Earth in strange new lights.

Semicircular
Rainbow's seven strips -
Orbits of planet
Partial to eyes.

Lahari, at last I am here and I can leave my comments.
Very interesting to note how others, persons I know and do not know, react to your poems.
Add the newer compositions. Some of them are really good. sati dida

To eyes certainly. To an extent your imagery lends itself well to abstract or geometrical form - maybe we should try it at some point.

it is beautiful how you relate yhe cloud with different natural elements , how they are effected by the coming of rain in a very rhthymic way.
