monsoon of emotion

romantic rains

Ink does not stay on paper in this monsoon
Such fire escapes the heart in this monsoon
As it rains, someone ponders the fate of love
Is there a lonelier occupation in this monsoon?
The Parliament session is just about to begin
It will drown people’s hopes in this monsoon
Beggars, all wet, struggle against more hardships

This way they will go hungrier in this monsoon
dogs, bewildered, take shelter among the trees
They lose all sense of territory in this monsoon
Auto rickshaw driver curses the incessant rain
Then breaks into an old song in this monsoon
People are not abusing each other in the streets
Their venoms get some respite in this monsoon
A man is sent to the gallows without substance
The law can’t wash off its sins in this monsoon
The lovers strip themselves in amorous hurry
To drench like the wild earth in this monsoon.

-Manash Bhattacharjee-
