The Rains

By | June 30, 2009

The vista has begun greening and looks clean with scant rains. This year, monsoon till now, is very weak. The clouds seem very lazy and seem to be in no hurry to pour waters on the thirsty earth. In the other times, it would have poured plenty of water from the skies. This year, it is occasional heavy shower and sometimes drizzle.

The grass has sprouted on the bald ground turning it from sepia tint to green carpet. Only small patches of bald land are visible. The trees seem washed and happy. When the strong winds blow, their branches dance into the air.

There is still no muddy water in the rivulets. There is no swelling of waters in them. Sea seems to be very remote and connected to the rivulets via a very thin cord of water. When the huge quanities of water will pour into the sea from these rivulets, high tides will push the water back and it will spill on to the land, the land which has been suffocated by the buildings, will not be able to cope with it and enter the homes and inundates the streets.
