This was in my balcony in Pune. A dozen or more birds were going any which way with loud noises that day and then I heard a distant thunder . . . and even today I wonder if they were warning each other of the impending rain or if they were enjoying the rain after a hot spell . . .
Yes, I remember! Wasn't it the THF Per Diem: The Elements (September 2012)? I had a triple result with this poem as it was picked up by you, and by Presence magazine, as well as reprinted by tempslibre. :-)
