Summer Rain!!



The pleasant breeze
the hush wind
that touches my cheek
the fresh sweet air
that floats my hair

With each leaf falling
with each sweep of wind
makes me remind
It's time for fall again
heavy clouds rolling by

This sudden rain 
on a summer evening
the stillness of everything
and the serenity 
of the late evening

I smell the scent of mud
with each drop of rain 
on the tired earth
filling its thirst of the year

I miss you my love 
I miss my hands around your neck
I miss my head on your chest
listening to the rhythm of your heart

I miss you time and again
on this night of summer rain!!

    1. You are right. This cycle is eternal. When together, can't bear them...when apart, can't live without them :)

  9. Heart felt words. Somehow we tend to associate rains and windy evenings with melancholy, longing and missing someone. Just what I've felt. Very nicely written :-)

    1. I so agree with you. I think it's got to do with the weather; that makes us gloomy and swings our moods. You know, without your comment, my post never becomes complete. Thank you, Ashwini :)
