the Wait is Over…

He has heard

Our prayers,

The longing of the earth,

And our soul calls.

The rain which we longed for

Has fallen lightly

The whole day long.

The sky is now

A dull grey,

But that is a

Small price to pay;

For the peace

That the rain has brought,

To my aching heart.

But is my waiting over?

Will my longing

Be ever quenched?

Even with the downpour

Of one life long ?

Am I not looking for Him

In every flower,

In every bush

And in every rain drop?


In continuation of Waiting with Longing ..

Thank you so much for your prayers and wishes : Saba, Swapnal, Ashna, Ian, Bugskybuckeye, Huguette, Just Me, Jyot, Kamal, Steve, Jyoti

    You have to wait ages for the recipe ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. I think it’s a interior Sindh recipe. Sounds scrumptious ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

  2. Send me the recipe of Sindhi Biryani Saba. I think it could be like the famous Hyderabadi Biryani ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Sindhi curry is with lots of Veges, including drum sticks and besan as base ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Insha Allah you too will have rains soon.

  3. Not yet. Karachi has been enjoying a rainy weather but Hyderabad and interior Sindh still waiting.
