Rain! Rain! Come Again!!

And so the past 2 days, have finally brought some rain to hot and humid Delhi.

Pouring down the passing clouds
you fell upon the rooftops of this world.
Then you ran in every direction
and escaped through the drain spout . . .

You marched down the ridges
neatly down the corrugated tin roof.
Falling free atlast
but first in tandem...

Focused at first 
and then all blurry.
Together, like little children jumping into a puddle.
Marching. Falling. Flying.

I caught you 
on the cushion of my tongue.
You fell into a deep slumber
in the arms of the Beloved.
