THE SNOW FLAKES by Brijkaul

                                                             The Snow Flakes

Every dawn , a dusky dull day all

Clouds scudding across the horizons

the

wind growling howling groaning

Evening chilly breeze sprinkling dew

over the rose petals green trees

Inclement weather heralding a snowfall

Snow Snow Snow white flakes

drifting dancing rapidly downwards

drooling mountains,trees, forests

folding valley in its clasp

as single soft white alabaster

The severe winter ‘Chillai Kalan’

showing its grinding teeth

by forcing men women children

old and infirm one and all seek heat

draping ‘pherans’ loose robes warm and hot

huddling around ‘Bukhari’ a fire pot

to

combat biting intense winter’s wrath

like a group of smooching sloth

the birds flock to the window sill

to keep warm away from the chill

waiting for snow to stop

so that the mother sparrow

would fly out to hop

from tree to tree to look for

some twigs food picks

to

feed her squeaking pretty chicks.

 snow snow snow the snowflakes

drifting dancing merrily downwards

to cool the fraying tempers

of the earthly whimpers
