The Zephyr


The Zephyr

The freshness reflected by the azure sky
Had not been there for long,
The glumness in the air had vanished
That was foretelling a cold storm.

The tiny birds with their feathers splayed
Seemed oblivious of the downpour,
And happily they perched on a window sill
To sing a tune or more.

The earthy dewy petrichor
A heavenly smell to treasure,
Was something long forgotten
As the senses had gone blunt,
To such fine evoking pleasure.

Quietly from my patio
I took a note of things,
Indulging in the lovely weather,
Bringing essence of the spring.

Fading moments,
Fleeting times,
And fond memories
All came back, in a matter of flash!
When touched by the zephyr, a gentle breeze.

Thank you so much, John, for your generous words! Will definitely go through the poem where you have written about petrichor. I was introduced to the word a few months back by a dear friend. Monsoon being a common thing here, It was a priceless addition to my vocabulary! I am glad you noticed that I had used it in the poem.

I love all the things you experienced while sitting on your patio. A change in the air, the birds, the smell of the earth, and your memories are beautifully brought to life in this poem.

Such a beautiful image you portray in this delightful poem, Farah. I recently wrote about the distinct smell of rain on the earth “petrichor” also. I always look forward to reading your next piece of engaging poetry. Have a lovely day.
