Abode of clouds

They had come for a tete-e-tete.
New guests that we were
At their abode.
Outside the window they waited,
In deference,
which they always show to their guests.
Dressed in their finest white,
They waited patiently outside the window.
Waiting for me to wake up.
Then in a moment of sheer delight,
Like a chirpy maiden’s giggle,
Reminding me of tinkling bells ringing somewhere in the distant meadows,
They let themselves fall
As gentle rain,
There to reside as droplets
Resting on window pane and
Nestling on the leaves.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
