India Diary 1

A Poem by Anand Sehgal

Suddenly came from nowhere ,
the pitch dark clouds.
It had gestated the
"much awaited rains" for long.
For me ,
Waited a feel-good journey by a local train in India,
The unique thirst-quenching scent of soil
after the rain-drops hit the ground ,
The pleasant moist breeze....
The awesomeness never ceases
in my hometown, in my own world -
The very much known world.

I've always loved the rain, but it does have an extra soothing effect when I'm at home. Anywhere else and it just seems like rain, but at home it feels special. Reading this made me consider the idea that many English professors see hanging out in the rain as a sort of baptism (I had to do a lot of analytical novel reading this past year, so I'm up on it :) ). Knowing that just made this resonate with me more. It's like coming home sort of makes you better and fixes all the bad things. Good write.

I love the sensuous feel of your poem. Yet, my favorite lines are the last two for their uniqueness. Most enjoyable read for me, thank you, Poet.

There is joy in rain....a joy in knowing the grass will grow and the flowers will bloom. I could almost smell the rain in the air. The rejoicing in this bit of nature is lovely. I enjoyed it. Lydi**
