I Wonder.

The earth is celebrating
How can you sit at home?
Across the streets and pastures
The winds of change have blown.

The sultry sun has faltered,
Grey clouds have dropped their frown.
How can you not be smitten
As nature wears her crown?

Green bursts through banyans, peepals;
Their leaves laugh with the rain.
How can you miss the music
That lifts your heart again?

The sky cracks into lightning;
How can you not feel awe?
As thunder roars with colours
Of passion, rich and raw.

And as the earth rejoices
The tempests that it brew,
How can your soul not nurture
The wilderness in you?

I wonder.
