The Colour of Water

Rain falling, day after day,
as if trying to clean off
our permanent stains,
but all it does is discolour
this well-worn shirt,
and wash the memory
of all the passing seasons
from the walls.

This is not summer
nor autumn nor winter:
sometimes I recognize myself,
then forget.

Maybe after so much rain
all colour will be washed out
and my shirt then be the colour of water.

Very nice poem Mohan  short yet meaningful…

शायद कोई रंग ही ना बचे किसी सदी में इतनी बारिश के बाद 
यह कमीज तब पानी के रंग की होगी !

Its nice to understand with you..
