A cynical term — A cliche for some—

In the media society,

But often, surprisingly,

It blooms

Unbidden, in calcified hearts,

And it becomes

A pleasant feeling or a

Sudden sensation you feel, while looking at the wild flowers

Blooming in the old brown plains, Scalded hills or dusty grounds

—————This ancient emotion experienced by even the non-humans————–

Refreshed by a departing strong shower of the

Tired Indian Monsoon
