The noises of being born by pushing the earth aside, growing up, climbing, clambering for a space for itself towards Sun, flowering, enticing pollinators, seeding and spreading them in the best possible manner and best possible places…….ephemeral have done all by this time…….trees too have done their job……..rain (Monsoon) have sensed their message of being now wanting to be in solitude and silence before they go back to the earth…. so it is tip toeing away, folding its clouds & putting them away for the next rainy season of 2015…..rain slowly saying good bye to all the greens in the forest & around…..letting the clouds to turn into fog and gently touch them all & then rise up in the sky for the last time to melt away.
