Beginning at dawn, on the mezzanine of the universe,

will gather rolling clouds en masse.

Like a garland, encompass the earth.

Like a bride quivering with longing and excitement,

the forecasters measure, speculate and anticipate.

This nebulosity, they calculate, will release

No wack of thunder

Nor black rain to run over us

At a perfect moment

That moment of baya,

when all is as one,

will flow lahaars of light

meandering to momins’ hearts.

Rekindling an eternal spark,

soaking the universe

with boundless Beauty and Joy.

Heralding a 100% chance of Happiness.

Eventually will come, hand in hand

as always, Grace and Mercy.

This poem was written during a road trip across Canada, inspired by the wonderful, Canadian landscape and all the kind helpful people I met.
