End of a Monsoon Day

by Sunita Fernandes
All day, monsoon rain splashed making
Stars at my slippered feet.
Now, the washed sky blazes
Orange and then bleeds slowly, quietly.
First magenta, then a dark black red
Spawning and splashing across translucent
Heavens, unfurling softly into
Navy black.

What a show!
The final curtains are drawn.
The evening hush applauds, uncurls and
Stretches catlike. Its time she
Retires into the tranquil night sky.

Peace has once again dominion
Over the firmament.

Until tomorrow.
