Monsoon ramblings

Do you consider the months of incessant rain
A very big pain
Does the roaring thunder
Make your life go asunder

Or are you one of those
Who wait for the downpours next dose?
Just one look at an overcast sky
To some brings immense joy

The most awaited season
That makes you want to celebrate without any reason
Does the onset of the monsoon
Make your heart sing a different tune

Though riddled with uncertainty
Yet reasons for its importance can be found aplenty
Will it flood and endlessly pour
Or will the spectre of drought be knocking at our door?

While the met makes predictions
The Rain Gods point in other directions                
So you’re more often than not caught unaware
Don’t despair some days in life are always unfair

My constant companion, my umbrella
He’s a jolly good fellah!!!
Protecting me from the wet
This season’s most prized asset

Spotting a rainbow
Makes your soul seem to glow
You instantly smile
And feel life’s worthwhile

The colours of the VIBGYOR
Never seem to loose allure
And all impure gets washed away in their lure
Everything seems to fades in its grandeur

As everything looks washed and clean
The earth wears a cover of green   
We hope you enjoy the rains
And may the best be ordained

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

My metamorphosis into a bun maska...

My heart leaped with elation When I read- Cafeteria announces the launch of a bun maska station    Now I could have my favourite snack Any time round the clock without holding back
Long winding lines at the chaiwala Seemed to attest that I was not the only one who thought so So light and fluffy, melt in the mouth! Is one ever enough? Umm no!   Can be gobbled up in a jiffy No mess, a time save, really quick and spiffy  Not one but  four versions to choose from Eat to your hearts content without any qualm     Bun with butter, extra cheese, and if you have a sweet tooth, there's jam  Accompanied with a hot cup of  sweet tea,  Anything better can there be?  
 Then one night in my dream Appeared  my super  thin calorie conscious friend who  thinks she's  supreme   I was as usual gobbling away to glory When  she began to bore me with  her  calorie story
  150 calories in a plain bun  A spoon/  cube of butter only another 100  Making a normal one 250 cal  An irresistible slice of cheese ap…
