வா மழை / Come Rain

droplets on leaves
காற்றை தொடர்ந்து
வானம் கடந்து
மேகம் திரண்டு
வா மழை

தமிழ்நாடே ஏங்கி கிடக்கு
தண்ணீர் இன்றி வரண்டு கிடக்கு
தாகம் தீர்க்க வா மழை

நேற்று வரையில் அனல் சீற்றம்
சற்றே குறைந்தது இன்று
தாமதமின்றி வா மழை

காட்டில் விளங்குகள் இருக்கு
சுற்றுப்புறத்தில் மரஞ்செடிகள் இருக்கு
நகர்ப்புறத்தில் மனிதர்கள் இருக்கோம்
வான்திறந்து வா மழை

சற்றே தெளிந்த இதயம்
ஈரமின்றி துவண்டு கிடக்கு
தண்ணீர் தெளிக்க வா மழை

இரவே இருண்டு போனாலும்
உன் வருகை எண்ணி மகிழ்வோம்
வா மழையே வா
வடகிழக்கு பருவ மழையே வா...

----- ----- -----
Pursuing wind
passing sky
cumulative clouds
come rain

Tamil Nadu is laid crave
without rain its laid drought
to fill thirst come rain

Until yesterday its heat rage
but it little decreased today
so without delay come rain

In forest there’re animals
in ambient there’re trees and plants
in urban there’re we humans
open the sky and come rain

A little cleared heart
lay withered without wet
to spray water come rain

Even the night goes dark
we rejoice thinking your arrival
come rain come
northeast monsoon rain come...

wow... the sign of Northeast monsoon begins today and caught up with fresh sense.

Wow! Very provoking lines here! But Jeevan - haven't the monsoons come and gone?

Devika Jyothi said...

I am sending the north part from here....east should be following! :))

& will it soon be 'rain rain go away...come again another day'? :)

isn't it funny the way nature makes us 'want' and then makes us 'struggle'??

anyway, good that so many bloggers can interpret rain in so many ways...rain definitely inspires poets....and your lines are nice, Jeevan :)

Its raining in your blog. The drought will soon pass by. Nice.

The weather is not always what we want. Too much heat or drought trammel life of plants, animals and us humans.
Probably in your area people expect rain.
This is the beautiful invitation for the rain. I love your poem.
I love rain./not big rain/

Until yesterday is heat rage
but it little decreased today
so without delay come rain

Rakesh – Thank you! But this is northeast monsoon.

yes it happens, and there is a limit for everything and rain should shower equally and only then we could enjoy the rain throughout.

cyclopseven – Thank you dear :)

Krystyna – Thank you so much dear. Yes, the rain often makes us concern and yearly we face drought and flood at difference parts of country.

Devika Jyothi said...

Didn't get that Jeevan-- You want me to 'follow' the rain?? :))
