Varsha...I wrote this three years ago...

I thirst...
Not for love, money or
Even happiness.
I thirst for water
To quench the parched earth

IMG_4712

To bring green to the brown
To bring fresh hope to those
Who raise crops and food for us.

I need water
To fill the pots
Of each slum-dweller
Who puts her (it's never a he)
Vessel in a long line
And waits to drink, wash and live.

I have had enough of grishma ritu.

I want varsha...not just the odd shower
Or thunderstorm, but a steady,
Cloudy, drumming season
That will replenish the depleted
Plateau,that we live on
And call home.
