Rain Rain..Come Again!


the bright sky disappeared,
making way for the black thick clouds,
to radiate their warmth,
the cool breeze said it all,
putting a brake on my disturbed thoughts,
trees started dancing with joy,
as if waving their hands,
welcoming the imminent,
heralding the rain ! 
the dance of drizzling rain,
started emptying people from the streets,
all moving here and there,for a shelter!
the undiscovered road side sheds suddenly discovered,
found their worth!
people  adjusting their spaces,
looked like ..a sight of peaceful co-existence!
a glimpse of mutual love and bonhomie..
wow! though transitory..
the sweet aroma of soil in contact with rain,
filled the air with the earthy fragrance,
people indoors behind the windows overlooking rain,
looked like 'prisoners of rain' from outside,
two people walking on the road,
with one umbrella over their heads,
made me imagine the coziness,
as if walking with my love by my side!
deliberately i came out of my house,
to the open,
to enjoy the rain,
to get wet..
i looked at the sky,
from where it was dropping down,
drenched from head to toes, i felt like,
downpour of blessings by HIM,
touching my body and soul..
i loved my old mother saying,
" come inside,don't get wet,you will get cold and fever"
even now!
while making paper boat for my daughter,
i wanted to have one for me too!
i wanted to jump on the clogged water on the road,
the child in me whispering...
rain , rain ..don't go away,
come again , come again!

    The imagery is bounty with hope & nostalgia, drenched in devine downpour the rain may clinse the soul.

    This reminds me of my childhood. I don’t even think my kids ever played in the rain.

    Carpe diem!
