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!
