when it rains!!
of a saturday morn
f l a p p i n g l e a v e s
Shush softly in the breeze
Stray dogs barking in the distance
Some unidentified rustling
The twitter and chirp
of squabbling sparrows
Take nature’s symphony to a fine crescendo
in the steady joyful drizzle
As morning walkers murmur pleasantries
Their Nikes gripping the wet slopes, thwack softly
Coffee smells waft through with morning ragas
People cough and sneeze, toilets flush
Car whooooooshes past
Blur in the verdure
Scooter put-puts its way cautiously downhill
Another whines its way uphill
the gentle rain hesitates…
TAGA TAGA TAGA the mechanical rockbreaker
begins its persistent pulverising
at a nearby construction site
drizzle! trickle! 000!
HUMANITY TAKES OVER!!
