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 and 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 on 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 cleansing 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 i wanted to jump on the puddles the child in me whispering... rain rain don't go away come again come again!
