A bit of pitter
And a bit of patter
And a few drops here and there
A daisy dee
And a bumblebee
And all the pollen and honey they share
The daisy dry
The bumble cry
But treasures honey, pollen, raindrops – so rare
I went to the neighborhood chicken shop while going home on
Saturday and asked the guy in the shop to give a kilo of chicken. When I went
to cook it I found there were two hearts. So I thought it must be a “love bird”
– ‘do dil, ek jan hey hum!”. But then I discovered, there was only one leg, one
wing and not two but three hearts. Mhmm! So either it was a ‘dil phek ashiq’ or
may be the background score in the chicken shop must have been “Dil bhar, dil
bhar! Oooo dil bhar dil bhar!” and the shopkeeper gave me “dil” – bharke…
Monsoon has taken a break through out the country. And so
rain has disappeared from here too. Seems like people who were not getting the
rains has really cursed it, and so monsoon has to take some time off bitterly.
I only hope that all our good wishes brings her with all her loving showers
back to us soon! Amen!
Still compiling BBRR, suggestions welcome!
