A pond …for few days..

As dark clouds gather….

Sounds of thunder….

Strong noisy winds…

Then the skies open up…

It rains…&…rains…

The air is cooler…

Grass is greener…

The parched dry pond…fills up

 

As the storms pass on…the rains stop…

The full pond…now attracts many birds…

The gregarious lapwings …first to arrive

 

How many days…is it going to last..

Only the bright sun can say…

This sandpiper…looks like …is thinking exactly…what I'm thinking

Let me enjoy..till it lasts…!

Because …in few days…this oasis…will vanish…

And so will these barn swallows…and the rest…

And…so will my lovely evenings…
