monsoon musings



Monsoons generally stir up the poet inside many of us. Shri Atreya Sarma of Muse fame, penned and posted the following musings on 24th July 2009. :


Monsoon at peak

Men sucked

Into manholes                             


Monsoon at peak

Clogged drains

Traffic snarls


Monsoon at peak

Anticipating it

The bill-keen contractor

Patches up the road

Just the day before


Monsoon at peak

Pushing my car

Dripping with sweat


Monsoon at peak

Drinking water

And drain

In illicit sex                        


Monsoon at peak

Dogs and birds

Waiting in starvation

Along with beggars


Monsoon at peak



They had wipers


Monsoon at peak

Reluctant shutting                    

Of doors and windows

Mopping the ‘power’less floor                    

In dark suffocation


Monsoon at peak

Tickets sold out

Match cancelled


Monson at peak


Counting raindrops


Monsoon at peak

Mother earth

Having bath

To heart’s content


Monsoon at peak

Inexpensive honeymoon

For newly weds




In response to these , I too penned some more musings. Sample them :

    Jitoo ji,

    You have started a premonsoon feeling in all who read you; Walking through knee deep waters with all the dirt floating around; roads and gullis having a yearly bath; The trees and leaves standing out in their original greens;taking french leave to relive a honeymoon; well so many rainy thoughts crossed my mind; I can imagine the poets` minds trickling away like the raindrops.

    Thanks for sharing
