Theme: Sky

A Vivid Canvas


It is mid-July,

There is this

Vivid evening sky,

Colours contrast

And compete,

The monsoon clouds,

Assume different shapes,

Against the stark blue,

The fluffy white of the

Floating clouds,

The dark grey of the

Rain-heavy clouds,

Looking like a mushroom wide,

Another, a huge funnel,

In the sky,

Some are islands, scattered about,

While others look

Like a raised fist,

Or, a sitting rabbit or

An idling crocodile,

Painting the sky with

Range of stunning colours

off-white, pale, grey,

And intense blue;

The crying child,

Missing her mother,

Stuck to a barred window,

Looks up at the vault,

And instantly

Forgets her absent mother,

And finds

Many playmates so dear,

In God’s

Wonderful sky.
