Theme: Passion


by the sudden
nightly cloudburst 
the all-excited River
flowing with gusto
overlapped and drowned
her own banks
with no remorse

The breezing Wind
became passionately
raw and wild
driven with thunder
vibrating environs
jiggling, wiggling
swaying, dancing
unified the breach

Storm over
Wind blown-out
Sun peeps
from the fading clouds

Snug and playful
with the tender sunbeams
quiet flows the River
within her banks
in all her pristine glory
of the night before

Comment Deluge and then surfacing up after surrendering, onwards on its journey - the poem captures in -Vivid imagery almost like a movie in cinemascope- the art of living. A poem.that resonates
in its vibrancy in mind scape.

Comment I find it is also so very metaphorical and symbolic of woman power Feminine Nature. This poem reminds me of "Ghagra in spate" by great poet Daruwalla . Rajenderji very well composed I liked the positive re-generation side of it . I loved the last line flowing in "all her pristine glory of the carefree ..of the night before " Keep it up ! Best wishes.

Comment After the June 20th, 2013 flood of Southern Alberta, a Deluge of Kindness has been witnessed by people helping the flood victims as volunteers. Through a great trial a great humane effect has resulted. Your poem reminded me of this new life in more ways than one...

An enchanting description of natural phenomenon.

One is reminded of Daruwalla.
