DROUGHT

Severe summer drought has engulfed my life-

it has become dry, barren and lifeless like the Sahara desert.

But in Sahara you will find oasis,

not a single oasis is there in my life!

The marks of cracks have ornamented my soil.

I wait for cloud and rain-

my dried heart will receive

the nectar of romance from the heaven,

my yellow sand will be converted into fertile clay,

which will bear rich plantation with utter greenery.

After the rain, she will come in form of autumn

to resonate my life with the music of nature.

Then we will take bath together in dew,

separate in cold winter- separation is a part of romance,

and reunite again in spring- reunion is the very outcome of separation.
