The Rainy Summer
S Bharat May 2020
The Rainy Summer

In shower of raindrops
I see the dancing tufts of grass,
Under the shaky trees
Lying a huge flower fruit mass.
In midst of stormy wind
I plod 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

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,
From 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.

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 the boy started singing her song.

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

She loved Butterfly
So much
And
Its songs she used to sing,

So, I placed one
On her hand.

She screamed
And
Threw it away.
For it was without wings.

Birthday

I realised far away
From my place
I reached.
And many promises
I breached.
To be wished by loved ones
On my birthday
I thought.
And my mother
I forgot.
On this day,
She was lying
In agonies of death.
For in this world
I had to
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.

Let Us Not Wait

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

You, do not hold the grudges,
Always let them go.
There are good people around.
Yet, you never know.

Life is too short to have room for Reticence and anger.
Speak with the loved ones now,
For they'd be no longer.

Lest you lose them for good
To them, you, walk.
God forbid you regret later and
Say, "I wish I could talk."

The god can't help loving you.

Wake up, my little sparrow!

I shatter the lull and drift
The dry leaves and dust
Even inside the threshold
Because I am the Gust

Today I have brought
Cool wind of the sky dull
Sky has sent the message
Of the Rain's arrival

The sizzling Day living
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

Lightning threatens Soil
War has begun with Sound
Birds shall take shelter and
Cry with yelping hound

I carry the smell of lumps
Yet, it is pleasing to some
And they are unaware
Of what is about to come

The Beauty

The Beauty

She was the artistry
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.

And made me do,
I saw they cut a joke,
And I did too.

And did grow.
Then I saw them and
How they spoke;
I laughed at them when
They cut the joke.

"Watch this video today",
Say the laughing boys -
Far afield from warmth,
Tenderness and joys.

"A person has committed
Suicide under the train;
He is cut and writhing dies"
Is their constant refrain.

"He struggles violently for
The two minutes in suicide",
They reiterate and I frown
At them - dumb wide-eyed.

Thirty two at noon and in the evening added few,
Seventy five by eight and eighty four by nine.
But they were not seen by the best friend of mine.

The golden egg, an Owl put
In the nest of nerd,
Out of which came then
The Hummingbird.

A gemmy nestling saw nerd,
the sooty Raven
He was terribly shocked and
in grief driven.

Aware Peahen asked Raven
Eyes aren wet?
Seethingly he answered her
The little I hate.

The restless little flatters,
As a bee unstable
And hovers above flowers
Which do wobble.

Belated Peahen took Raven
To Peacock White.
The incident she explained,
And story did recite.

Let my wisdom penetrate,
In thy empty brain,
Love begets love; hate hate
Said Whitish sane.

Take care of her, no her liberty,
The little be free.
Wish she pearches on loyalty;
A branch of Tree.

I said to some flowers
And shook.

"Happiest moment in life",
Said the flowers
"When in search of nectar
The bee hovers."

I said, "It's very interested
and swollen,
Has selfish purpose and
Carries pollen."

"You pluck, hand over us
When you meet,
***** down us on floor.
We lie at feet."

"Our friends, our chums
Butterfly and bee!"
Bluntly said the flowers
And rejected me.

And a docile goat.
Once he went through
Jungle in the boat.

There, he left his dog
Known as bad hat.
The dog returned home
And received a pat.

A sweet darling pet.
It made the dog happy,
The goat very upset.

The goat annoyed none,
Made no mistake.
Still she was ******* to
A rusty iron-stake.

The reason
My professor loved me
So much,
I thought there was
Something to be known.
When I asked him
To give its account,
He smiled and
Had something nice
To be shown.
He opened his diary then,
Some lines he sought.
Once you'd opined,
he said then,
It was the great thought
On the peak of success
(in your mind).
He continued his talk
And told the rest,
It shouldn't be having
The tip and cliff
Or that of the Everest.
A question you'd raised,
What if it is
The Table Mountain
And its land?
You meant, its crest,
Where everyone
Could stand.

Are the secrets in Tesla's view.

Left behind on a sea shore

Constantly wiping off them.

They left me broken down
To walk with my feet sore.

When you were no more.
Life without you was bare,
And very agonising - I knew.
If you leave me alone here,
See I can't live without you.

In the mist of my own

Caring for my pretty face
It is so pleasing to me
When I take a selfie

I meet girls and women
And tell them in vain
This is memory for me
When I take a selfie

My beauty drives me crazy
Always keeps me busy
I always think only of me
When I take a selfie

I get an immense pleasure
To open up the treasure
I look at none but me
When I take a selfie
