Music of Nature

a poem by Sanal Kumar

After a long time
A cool, damp, sweet atmosphere.
Proclamation of monsoon rain,
I sat beside the window
Looked down below the
Plantain leaves
To see sky cast its first drops
And then spread with all leaves.
Suddenly
Thunder beat its gigantic drum
Lightening flashed its silvery swords,
Rain began to dance
With fullest vigour.
I went to my room,
And lay down on my bed
Listening to this cool music of nature,
Hoped that it never ceased.
