Showers of Happiness


With puddles of water on the way,
Up the sky, the clouds are gray,
Ahead of you, a wet path lays
For, the showers of happiness are at play!

When colourful shelters shot up the air,
And people don the rainy wear,
On the way you walk with care
And feel the showers of happiness everywhere.

You sense a joy that makes you sing,
It makes you dance or makes you swing
A moist smell, the soil brings
Yes, showers of happiness are pouring in.

So its time, for the lakes to fill
And its time, when the winds go chill
Haven’t you thanked the Rain God still?
For, the showers of happiness are His will.

Vyo,

Your words flow, rainwater like
Kindling memories and smells
Monsoon reminds me of many a hike
And those train-stopping spells.

Eating roasted corn* on the street
Forgetting the umbrella deliberately
Wading through floods was a treat
Haven't indulged in such things lately.

* 'Bhutta' in the Mumbaikar's lingo

Time to listen once again to Jagjit Singh's "Woh kaagaz ki kashti woh baarish ka paani..."
