The Rainy Summer
S Bharat May 16
The Rainy Summer

In shower of raindrops
I see dancing the tufts of grass,
Under the shaky trees
Lying a huge flower fruit mass.
In midst of stormy wind
I sludge through the mud.
Frozen is the cow,
Standstill buffalo and stud.
The rain begins to pelt down;
I cover myself with the sack.
During dark drizzly night,
The absence of light
Takes me into the past far back.
The lull song for me
Is sung by the frog-choir.
Soon I fall asleep
That crickets and fireflies admire.

S. Bharat
It's a depiction of life of people in Maharashtra (India).

But I Won't Tell You

Though I don't seem to care
I have many things to share
But I won't tell you

Though I don't seem to give in
I long when you're not seen
But I won't tell you

Though I don't appear at night
I miss you out of your sight
But I won't tell you

Though I don't have you here
I yearn and want to be near
But I won't tell you

Though I don't seem to do
I love madly and think of you
But I won't tell you

In the House

Away from them
I always walk.
Wherever I go,
To me they stalk.
A shelter from them
Now I seek.
Everyday I'm violated,
And getting weak.
I don't find
Any place of stillness;
Away from them
And getting into mess.
I don't want to be
Here any longer.
Please, stick me out.
For I'm stuck
In the house called
The body with
Love, lust and anger.

So much
And
Its songs she used to sing,

So, I placed one

Threw it away.

The Other

"Panyacha barka tambya dya, Kaku",
From outside, a boy cried
For his father had toiled in field
And his throat completely dried.

Kaku shouted at him
"It's Chhota, not Barka" with her eyes-wide.
"Run away from here,
Stupid guy from countryside!"

"Panyacha Chhota tyamba dya!"
Then he preferred to say;
"It's Lota, not Tambya, Duffer!" Chachi harshly said.
From there too he wended his way.

He didn't have any courage
To ask anyone for water for his father
Whom he should reach out?
He was considered to be the other.

An Aunt stood in the corner
And was watching this drama all along
She offered him a glass of water
Since then boy started singing her song.

Sometimes people judge others by the words which they speak and the place where they live.

I realised far away
From my place

And many promises
I breached.
To be wished by loved ones
On my birthday

And my mother

In agonies of death.
For in this world

Take a breath.

The Photos

Taking photo has gone
Through a change;
Sometimes this is to absolve,
Sometimes
To take revenge.

I wonder as to
Whose status is raised high;
Is it the person taking selfie
Or the person
Standing by?

It's no longer for
Your simplicity but shape;
You got to be pretty no matter
How you make face
Or gape.

I wish not to see them
As now they startle;
I capture the moments slowly
And make them
Immortal.

Minutes tick, moments slip
And the days pass by.
Let's not wait. Let's not say
"Why should firstly I?"

Good people are around you.
Yet, you never know.
For you hold the grudges. And
Never let them go.

You will lose them for good
If to them you don't walk.
God forbid you regret later and
Say, "I wish I could talk."

She Is Now Used To That

By day, she is happy
And able to spend the time
In her own imaginary world.
She manages it with her selfies
Which keep her away
From nervousness.
By the time it darkens,
The effect of her imaginary world deserts her, And she is down to earth,
Again engrossed with the harsh reality.
She becomes introvert,
Exposes herself to me
And sheds tears every night
Saying that in her showy life
There is nothing in lieu of sorrow.
But the next day, she does the same.
She is now used to that.

Suddenly I end up silent
And put aside the book
When smitten with memories.

In the chair and always feel
Warm tears trickle down
From the corners of eyes.
How long shall I gulp back
Tears and placate myself
That I'm happy without you?

Frolicking in garden, it became mute.

And afraid to be taken away for good.

Let Me Tell You

To,
Dear friend,
I saw you and found
That you are unhappy.
Please, don't feel sick at heart
After looking at those
Who are happy and revelling
At this moment.
Let me tell you one thing.
They are at peak of their joys
And have to come down.
Time flees.
The person looking outwardly happy
Can be nervous from within.
The person who continuously
laughs is lonely.
The person whose smile
Soon deserts
Him or her is really
In need of somebody's company.
The person who wants
To be surrounded by others
And in popular zone is not stable.
You may ask then
"Who is happy?"
I'll say, "No one!".
Those who claim to be happy
Are deceiving others
And themselves too.
Those who leave the people
In search of happiness
Are the ones who long for
The company of the people.
Happiness is temporary.
Mind is truth
And truth is permanent.
Keep it in your mind.
You will never be sorry.
Yours,
Wellwisher.

Bloweth a wave of air
By the sun doth rise.
An Angel doth appear
In a Lassie's guise.

"I will take birth
As thy childe - wise,
Fairest on the earth
With pretty eyes."

"The God's grace!"
Quietly I replied
Glowed her face
And she smiled

"I change thy race",
Quoth the Lassie,
"As doth fair dress
Enrich form classy."

"Thy wife be the gal
Purely thou love
Be thy beautiful pal;
Be thy heart's dove"

"Speak heart to gal
What lie deep in mind
How she doth enthral;
How she is so kind."

"Call her in a way
She shall surely come",
Lassie doth say;
"Me - thy child at home"

"No, My Childe!
She won't come."
"Is she not mild?
She hath other home?"

"Yes, My Childe!
She hateth me,
Soon goeth wild
And will scold thee."

"Forgive me, I see no ray",
Imploringly I do plea.
"This maketh her no day.
But unknown doth see."

"She too doth thy care.
No, Pop, think no evil.
A mask she doth wear,
Being afraid of Devil."

"Wish Mom doth dare,
Beareth me in no dispair",
Lassie doth disappear.
Her voice vanisheth in air.

At miss or languor,

Muttering in anger.

Again slowly to left.
Keenly she observed face
And noisily wept.

Made up of the wool,
Before Mirror she cried,
"Am I not beautiful?"

"I tried the whole"

In May has been told
But his Night is remained
Completely untold

Black clouds rule over Sky
I convey you renegade all
You will be responsible for
This upcoming rainfalls

Cry with yelping hound

Yet, it is pleasing to some
And they are unaware
Of what is about to come

Of the artisan
That they spent their
Hours to see

They lost themselves
Or the reason
After watching - they
Spoke with me

She was the beauty
Curing the pain
That they adored and
Could not part.

I was suggested by
One of the men
I should show her my
Broken heart.

With my heart she had
Nothing to do
She remained mute and
Unfeeling too

I realised I could not
Fulfil my goal
For she was the idol
Without soul.

Breath and Love, the best friends
Have a quarrel one day.
"I stand by you. Do you know that?"
Vehement Love says;

"You are unworthy. Bear in mind",
Love harshly blames.
Breath is listening to Love silently
And nothing claims;

"I reside in longing and yearning"
Overhastily Love raves.
The words "Where are you?" hurt
And make Breath grave.

As Love has disowned as a friend,
Breath turns to depart,
With a wistful smile says to Love,
"Ask your own heart."

What beauty on earth turns your gaze?

My bonny waist, neck, face or curves?
The Sage is out of his nerves.
Neither your body nor a beautiful saari
Turns my gaze to you, Naari.
In Karma that power takes its origin.
That is the beauty, he grins.

In the ******* husky voice?

Gliding Veil

With gliding veil in dark wood
Unknown woman years stood
Beheld the way-strayed King,
Fuddled in his amorous ring.

Undressed her backward view
He saw and cloth tried to give.
To extend hand, to touch skin;
His ideas were her heart to win.

The glory and kingdom I shun,
In search of true queen do run.
Noble thou look, on thee I dote,
He handed and lines did quote.

She fell and into pieces broke
Just as he touched as a crock.
In fright chest began to heave,
Come to senses - he withdrew.

The sedate King lost in thought;
Beauty, the volant veil brought?
It was that immovable queen?
Or feeling fostered from within?
