Rain, Rain Come Again!

Posted on



And suddenly the heavens opened
Droplets of transparent crystal
Showering down as far as eye can see
And everything and everyone is smiling
People, trees, squirrels, birds
And metal boxes parked alongside the road
Even God laughs through the roaring thunder
So quickly everything turns to water or mud

      Thank you very much. The Summer was going on very hot and dry since several days. The whole city was longing for a rain – or some relief. And one evening it actually rained – and I couldn’t stop myself from walking out to the office balcony and see it. So these words came out naturally, and I put it on paper. Thanks for the nice words! 🙂

    I love the unexpected appearance of smiling trees and squirrels in this poem.

    Thank you for the kind words!
    Though I’m not much of an outdoors person myself, but I can sense that the birds, squirrels and trees are having a hard time facing heat, dust and very dry winds. And when the rain actually started pouring down, one can hear the noise (probably an applause than of relief) they make. I felt even the trees were smiling. 🙂
