It was the month of June
  
  The month of monsoon rains…
  
  The long, wide road lined with trees
  
  Seemed to wait for the visitors
  
  With the red carpet spread on the road
  
  A red carpet ……….of Gulmohars
  
  
  
  A little girl on her way home
  
  Stopped at the sight of beautiful reds
  
  Her eyes fixed at the red canopy
  
  If only she could pluck a bunch………..
  
  
  
  Just then a small boy came along
  
  A bag hanging on his shoulders
  
  
  
   ‘Oh…!!What flowers..!! His eyes gleamed with joy
  
  
  
   ‘Come on ……..we will pluck some’
  
  
  He hugged the trunk of tree
  
  Crawled up…… climbed up…….,
  
  Stood on a low branch of the giant tree
  
  His hand stretched down …
  
  
  
   …’come on little girl, it’s so Dreamy up here!’
  
  
  
  The wide eyed girl seemed puzzled
  
  
  
   ‘Shall I ?!… shall I not??!!’
  
  
  
  Her eyes gazed the huge red umbrella above
  
  Mesmerized her little soft hands went around the rough trunk
  
  She creeped along its crevices
  
  Clutched the boys hand
  
   Jumped on with delight……..jumped up with joy
  
  
  
   ‘Wow!!!’…was all she could utter
  
  
  
  
  
   ‘Come on….up here…up still…’
  
  
  
  Moved the boy higher & higher
  
  Pulling along the little girl
  
  
  
  There they were at the top of the tree
  
  The dark clouds seemed to hug them
  
  The sky looked like a canvas
  
  
  
   ‘Let’s paint a Rainbow’
  
  
  
  The boy took out a brush &
  
  A box full of colors from his bag
  
  His deft hands stroked colors …one by one
  
  Across the blue sky, in a big bow
  
  
  
  The girl watched in awe
  
   & sheer admiration
  
  Violet…… indigo……. Blue……. Green…… Yellow…….. Orange………&
  
  
  
   He just stopped……..
  
  
  
  ‘Oh!! I don’t have red..?’
  
  
  
  ‘Not to worry’ …said the girl smiling
  
  ……..lets get it from the Gulmohars’
  
  
  
  The boys face lit up….
  
  
  
  But …
  
  
  
  They heard a worried sweet voice
  
  From the ground…. From the base of the tree
  
  
  
  ‘Come on dear boy…its time to go home’
  
  
  
  ‘Oh!! Yes mom………coming….’
  
  
  
  Said the little boy
  
  
  
  ‘Let’s get down….’
  
  
  
   He clutched the girls’ hand
  
  Pulled her down the branches
  
  
  
  ‘But…….the Rainbo……& the Gulmo……?’
  
  
  
  ‘Will do it on the morrow….’
  
  
  
  Just a blink …there they were on the Ground
  
  The Boy ran to his mom,
  
  Turned back…….. Waved his hand
  
  The two just went away…….
  
  
  
  The girl looked up
  
  There it was …………the unfinished Rainbow
  
   ………that had no Red
  
  She sighed …………..started walking back
  
  
  
  Summers…, springs…, winters…
  
   ……………Seasons rolled over
  
  …………& that morrow never came
  
  
  
  But still ……….
  
  The girl sighs……..when the rains lash
  
   ………when Gulmohars bloom
  
   ………when she sees an unfinished Rainbow
  
  ………..bent across the sky ……that has no Red in it…….
