Pearls in the Muddy Lake

Pearls in the Muddy Lake.2

Stray lotus leaves

sitting pasted on the muddy lake

collect raindrops, and turn them

into sparkling pearls of

different shapes and size.

The momentary jewels – glowing

white and bright, being proudly

flaunted by the muddy lake, are truly

the sublime gifts of the monsoon,

bringing immense jubilation all around.

What a feast for the eyes!

What a joy for the heart and …soul!
