Come September

Where have all the typhoons gone?
Where is the lava of the volcanoes?
The earth does not quake again
The lightening strikes no more

In peace, the planet rests


Six centuries it takes
For the dust to settle
And the waterfalls to dry up
Before the first rain starts again


And down below, in the plains
A little green leaf grows

That’s the time it takes to go from peaceful to peaceable.

  1. @ Vi: Some trouble with WordPress and/or the picture so I took it off.

    @ Sreejith: Am not a big fan. I always thought they were more the ‘boom-crash-bang’ sort? I could be wrong.
