Love Springs Unbidden

By Sunil Sharma

Love springs unbidden

Term Cynical, for the inhabitants of media society
raised on clichéd images and an overdose
of sanitized romance on the screen, big/small.

But, strangely, sometimes --
it takes root in hard soil

and grows, unlikely places,
like the heart of a Scrooge,
and becomes uplifting!

Or a
sudden sensation you feel,
while looking at wild flowers
blooming in the old brown plains,
scalded hills or dusty grounds
off the long highways
refreshed by the last shower of a
tired Indian Monsoon.
