Clouds

I wake up each morning to look at the sky

Is it blue, white, and billowy?

 

Clouds

They always surprise me

Today the cerulean canvas 

is filled with stratus clouds

Leaving a wispy trail 

across the sky

Bringing bliss in the quiet dawn.

 

Delhi never gets to see

A lustrous sky

We see gloomy clouds hovering over the city

Or peripatetic clouds in the monsoon

But these seem to be idling

Ephemeral and detached 

unlike my thoughts

 

I silently witness the culprit wind

Shooing them away swiftly 

Rays of hope and courage

Are nestled in cloudy layers

Leaving behind a trail of happiness.
